A thrifty find and a peek at our house

So I found the sweetest little chair at Good Will yesterday. 
I was searching through the furniture and there she was...
Like an old washed-up beauty queen from the 80's. Too much blue eyeshadow and a bit...wider... than the other younger, slimmer gals.
She was blue, painted over red, painted over lots of kid's stickers. Here's after I started tackling it all with some cream colored paint. I didn't have any primer handy but this did the trick, after two long coats. All those curved spindles took forever. 

I think she's going to fit in just fine around here. 
But I've only left her cream out of laziness. I want to paint her a fun color or maybe do stripes on the seat, but I'm not sure what to do yet. I was going to ask for your opinions, but I realized you don't know what my house looks like so it would be hard to pick a color. So here's a few snippets of our room, dining room and breakfast nook.

So what color would you pick for my chair?
Blue? Gray? Green? 


  1. What a gorgeous home! I am smitten with your kitchen table and chairs.

  2. I love great finds at Goodwill! I say gray or paint stripes. Love that chair- kind of wish I found it for my little man:)

    If people are wondering where all my musical gear, sports equipment, or any sign of manhood is... well... I have a small corner in the closet just for me. I admit I share it with Disney movies.
