Q is for Quandry


Supposed to be selling these (above).


I am about ready to toss a coin just so I can get a good nights sleep...I simply can't decide whether to hang on to the dining chairs that I bought with the intention of making over and keeping for home.......or.......keeping the chairs that I bought with the intention of making over and selling. These have turned out better than I had imagined and I love the way they look around the table.....but....they are not nearly as comfortable as the other set. Maybe I should just wait until I have painted and reupholstered both lots of chairs and then make my decision.

I guess if that's the hardest decision in my life at the moment, I should be very thankful!

It is so lovely to be receiving comments from such lovely ladies. Can someone please tell me when the euphoria of getting a new comment or a new follower will subside????

Hi Ange,
I agree with Andrea, I too love the first set of chairs. Both are lovely but the top ones are my choice.
Happy blogging!

Hi Ange, the chairs are stunning but have to agree I love the first set of chairs. But the second ones are gorgeous too. Just go for comfort I say as thats what it will boil down too. Can't believe your going to upholster them yourself, what fabric are you going to use? Would love to hold a workshop - you could do the upholstery class and I can do the painting or lamp shade making class.
Hope you can sleep tonight. Sandy

I love those chairs with the cane backs!!! I have been wanting a set for Quite sometime! You should hold on to those! I cant wait to see what you do with them! You are so talented!

Hi Ange, The first set look best - I like the narrower back on them and they look like they fit better. And the comfort factor should never be under-estimated... Can't wait to see the final products! Cheers Anita

Hi Ange, thanks for visiting our blog! I love both sets of chairs but I think the first ones suit your home the best...I know you intend to paint them but I like that they are different from the table! Tracey xx

I also love both sets of chairs! I think it's fun to mix things up a bit like you are doing.

My Pink & Cream Cottage said...

Hi Ange in answer to your last question it's a big fat *NO* I love getting onto my blog & reading the comments that are left for me, this blogland is a very special place made up of very special Ladies.... ok now to the chairs I like both & if they were in my little cottage (which is tooooooo small to have that many chairs) there would be no way they would get back over my threshold, keep them both I say.... sorry that has not helped you has it...

Hey have a great day...
