Chairs & Chandelier

I went on the hunt for new chairs this weekend for my kitchen. I was hoping I would find some I could paint, that way if the chairs and the table didn't exactly match, I could paint them to look the same. I found 4 of these at an estate sale.

They are solid oak, and the details are actually carved in. The are not applied. OH JOY!

It looks like someone had already tried a crackle paint finish on them. I'll let you know how they turn out after they are painted.

At that same estate/tag sale, I found a set of sugar sifters. I found out that before there was granulated sugar, it would come in blocks and you have to break it up yourself. Then you would use a spoon like this to "sift" out the smalls lumps for your coffee or tea.

I also wanted to post a photo of my neighbor's beautiful vintage chandelier. She explained to me that she has moved it from house to house because of it's beauty!

Many thanks to Debbie for letting me publish a photo of it...til next time.

Your chairs are just gorgeous. I love them. I can't wait to see what you do with them. I have never seen sugar sifters, or if I did I didn't know what they were. They are so pretty. Your neighbor's chandelier is indeed a keeper. I would move it from house to house also. Hugs, Marty
