Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Aluminum Dining Chairs


Contemporary meets farmhouse~
We are always trying to incorporate that into our home.


We had the farmhouse pine table made when we built the house.  Since then we have had antique chairs & a bench around it.  
Finally, we got new chairs to go with our table.


They are:
Delta aluminum chairs from Crate & Barrel.
Very lightweight but sturdy as can be.
Big enough for our teenage boys
but small enough to fit three chairs on each side.


We love the look of sleek metal with warm wood.

We haven't decided what do with the black chairs on the ends.


I covered a seat with a feed sack from our cattle grain and got corn all over the floor in the process!
It's cute but the plastic started stretching after a day.  We may try some reproduction feed sack prints.  That would be fun but functional but maybe a little too farm-ish.


For now they are covered with black with polka dots. 
 I love polka dots!
I think the chairs might look cute painted red with this fabric.  
It has red, green & gold dots and 
coordinates with the living room fabrics.


The verdict is still out on the black chairs
 but we love the aluminum ones!


Be joyful in hope.

  5. I kind of like the combination of the new chairs with the black ones. And, I love the feedsack look! Our feedsacks are paper and not nearly as exciting.

  7. I wish I had your decorative imagination. I love the mix of 'new and old' .... but can never capture it well myself.
    Oh, and I love the black ones too. The black with the aluminium with the 'old' looks great.

  9. Any chance you can stitch the feed sack to another fabric to hold it's shape from stretching? Sort of like you are quilting it to something that doesn't stretch? I think you do for a t-shirt quilt. Are they uncomfortable on legs with shorts on?? keep the black chairs if they are comfy. I'm more for comfy. We spend a lot of time at the table. I want people to stay a long time there. I have been adding pops of red to my kitchen and I like it!
    Thanks from me too for the comments returned. I've been having serious computer issues and thought maybe it was just me..
