This is the pair of chairs I told you about. We are going to ask an interior designer we know what she thinks. Our thoughts are ...1. paint the wood cream or a lighter brown than the black. 2. Be on the look-out for a table for between them that is finished in this black finish that is popular right now. What do you think? I'd love to have some input...smile. Please see the previous picture of the close-up view of the ornate carving details. On the other side of the room is a large tan leather sofa...recliner...and chaise..(which eventually will end up in the family room, cause I'm the only one who is in love with it....definitely!) Bye for now, I feel like I should be doing a zillion things at once...oh well, one step at a time.

Maggie Ann, Let me say that the room is beautiful! Its so cozy and homey, with flowers and some lovely orchids too! So peaceful there! The chairs are gorgeous! You can paint them a creamy color, or just strip them down and stain them a wood tone too...but they are quite lovely as they are also! No matter what you do, you can't go wrong really! Great finds..enjoy your day dear and many blessings to you.....

I love those chairs, if it was me I'd go with a light warm beigy brown colour, if that makes sense...

the room looks so warm and inviting ... and gleaming ... if you ever want to "gleam up" another house - why you are more than welcome to try mine! :o)

the chairs look lovely where you placed them ... and the ornate looks good in the pics!

blessings on ya!

If the chairs seem a bit too dark for you, you could put some type of a warm glaze over the black paint ... but they look beautiful in the room. Nice price!

I especially like cream! My livingroom is a warm mixture of dark-stained cherry wood and cream accents. I agree, your picture looks out of a magazine! Are those flowers real? (Because if they are....I'm sooooo jealous!)

And I LOVE bargain shopping!!!
