A Little French Country Touch

We have two of these vintage chairs. One came from a church yard sale and I use it for my sewing chair. The other one was handed down through the family.

Yesterday I found these Red Gingham Chair Pads on clearance at Walmart and bought the only two they had.

I will either use these two on the two vintage chairs, or if I can find some more of these at other Walmarts, I may purchase more to use on the chairs that go to my kitchen table. I think this chair with the pad would work well near the front entry.

Here is a picture of an entry using a chair with a red checked cushion. My entry would not be anything like this, but this does give me some ideas of how to arrange it. These same chairs and ideas could really dress up a hallway too.

I am going to slowly collect items that fit a French Country decorating theme. My main colors will be red, yellow, black and green. The country bench I posted about yesterday is the right color of brick red and has that aged look that is so pretty.

I love your bench from yesterday and what great chairs too. The red check pad is just perfect. Looking really good. Hugs, Marty

I am getting EXCITED... your new color scheme will be so pretty. I'm still struggling with the proper sewing chair. When I sew, my back and shoulders ache. I read somewhere that we should be high enough to look "over" our sewing. I'm not... so I definitely need to find a new chair.

Happy Birthday, Debbie,

The bench from your Love is great!
And, you have good taste, as well.
Cannot wait to see how you put all of this together in your new abode.

I lean toward French Country as well. I really, really like that chair and cushion! It's a perfect match for that chair.

Happy birthday! :)
