Over on our home blog we’ve been doing a dining room makeover for a few months. When we moved into the house, my parents gifted us with their old dining room table and chairs, and although I loved the table, I felt that the matching chairs (seen in this post) made the room too heavy.
I felt that the best way to bring this old table to life, was to invest in some new chairs. Our new chairs are via Silva, a Canadian furniture company that is the go-to spot for people like Sarah Richardson. They were kind enough to photograph the process of one of my chairs being made …
Here is a fun shot of the process of my Mia Chairs being made. The nail head detail has yet to be added, which I will reveal when we get our chairs next week. I’m loving the fact that we’re reusing an old table that has a lot of history for our family, but I’m bringing it into 2011 by just switching out the chairs.
Ps., How awesome is it that the chairs are made right here in Canada by an amazing, family run company.
