Good thing I only spent $40 on the 4 dining room chairs I bought earlier this year.  

Little Williee did a number on the corner of one (or two) of them.

They still function fine, but I'm thinking of scattering them about the house 
and finding something new for the dining room table. 

I've got my heart set on the lovely Bentwood chairs. 
Ideally, I would have six of them.

I have always admired them, but these two images from the new Domino issue solidified my love. 

Images can be found here.

My friend, Cassie, just added some Bentwood chairs to her super cool dining room.

I started this post on Friday and as luck would have it, 
I scored four Bentwood chairs (and a round butcher block table) from an estate sale on Sunday. 
I'm on the lookout for two more. 
I do plan to recover the seats of these four.

I would love to replicate the look of these beauties currently for sale on Etsy. 
An old Persian rug was used for the seat upholstery. 
I also love how they wrapped the top half of the chair in twine.  
Seems like an easy DIY. 

If Williee knows what's good for him, he'll stay clear of these new chairs!


  1. So fun! Love the Persian rug for seat covers! Good luck finding the remaining chairs, can't wait to see them around the table. Give Willie a little talking to would ya??!!!
