Thanks for the feed back on the chairs. I quite like the idea of the courdroy as it would ware well but I am still undecided & open to ideas. I had been thinking about using a patterned fabric but I rather like the bright block colour of these yellow chairs that I found over on Elle Decor. I think I am definatley going to be painting the wood work white though. I love these chairs they are so fresh & cheerful. I shall be collecting some ideas over the coming weeks & put them to you as would love your feed back. Its a special chair Im updating after all so want to get it right. What do you think?
