I have been trying to decide for weeks now whether to paint these chairs full white or leave the seat as is. Mum has been nagging me to paint them all white. After much deliberation, I've now come to a decision. All white it is. It would just look good in both dark or light walls. And the walls have been in constant makeover for a month now. From light gray to dark gray and now I think we are making it a rich purple or a light yellow. It's crazy, I know. But it is all for Christmas.
