It's starting to come together!

The dining area is finished!! Sounds silly, but just as I imagined it. The hard work (esp the sanding and painting of the chairs) was worth it. The walls need some decoration, but that's it.

Naked Ikea Tullsta chair.

Tullsta with its new cover! I have an Ektorp couch wich we bought a new black cover for to give it a new life, but they didn't have a black cover for the chair. Online I found www.savemysofa.com, a Swedish company that makes covers for Ikea chairs and couches in every possible colour!! Such a life saver for us (so we didn't have to buy a new chair right away), so check it out!! I highly recommend it.

Alright… working from home is still a bit messy… whoops! Annotaded.

The dining chairs worked out really well, didn't they? Isn't it lovely when it all starts coming together?

beautiful dining set. I love natural wood with painted chairs. Once I get a dining room this is how I'd like to do it.

Love the idea of painting the dining chairs. I had a set of chairs like that in my first apartment. We called out decor Modern American Charity. Seriously, the place looks fantastic.

You two won't know what to do with all of your spare time when all of the sanding and painting and decorating is all done.

I'm sitting on my ektorp as I type this. ;o)
I'm so envious that you have a balcony - if I had one, I'd be sitting out there all the time!
