I bet this dining room was someone’s “formal set” back in the day, meaning it only got used about once a year. If I had chairs covered in mustard-colored velvet, I’d probably only pull them out once a year too, and not because I was worried about staining. (other than from my throw up) The whole set just has this sickly yellow vibe happening, from the velvet to the tabletop to the funky speckled finish.
Luckily, this set got another go-round out of life when Korrie ditched the putrid hue in favor of striped dropcloth slipcovers, a fresh coat of Behr Pillar White, and about four coats of stain up top. AND she overachieved and did a matching hutch, but you’ll have to check that one out on her blog Red Hen Home.
