If you want to freshen up plastic chairs, you can paint them, too. Clean the chairs first, then use a fine-grit sand paper to rough up the glossy surface. After wiping away the grit, use an enamel spray paint that has been formulated for use on plastic. Apply two to three thin coats of the paint, allowing about an hour to dry in between each coat; be sure to follow the instructions on the can.
Mixing solid and patterned accent pillows provides a color balance. With a solid bench cushion, patterned pillows are a beautiful contrast. If you can`t decide on one color, choose them all. Brown rattan furniture is a great place to showcase one bold color.
The cushions are what really make a sofa comfortable. The least expensive option is high-resiliency foam, which compresses during use and comes back to its natural shape. For real luxury, goose-down filling is the most expensive option, but it doesn`t offer much support and needs to be fluffed up often. A good compromise between comfort and budget is an inner core of foam topped with cotton batting surrounded by a cover filled with goose down. The foam center provides support for the soft feathers.
If you want to sparay paint metal chairs, you`ll need to prepare them first by giving them a good washing to remove any oily residue that has accumulated. Next, rough up the metal so that the paint will adhere to the surface. If your chairs are assembled with screws, take the pieces apart if possible and remove the cushions so the spray paint will cover all of the nooks and crannies. Spray with a primer first, even if the paint you`ll be using has primer. This will keep you from having to use several cans of paint. Expect to apply at least two coats, letting the paint dry completely between treatments.
Round tables let you get more chairs around them, as do pedestal tables. Although the traditional country kitchen table is what comes to mind for this style, you can also find beautiful modern small kitchen tables made with metal pedestals and a variety of materials for the tops. One version has rounded chairs that, when pushed under the table, fit around the table edge—leaving only a small, circle-shaped footprint for the entire table set. Another modern small kitchen table idea is a Saarinen-style tulip table.
If your chairs are made of wood, you have many options for painting. Consider whether you want your chairs to blend in with the rest of your kitchen`s decor or give the room a color pop. You can paint them in a solid color, or paint the legs or base one color and the seat another shade. Use the chair as your canvas and incorporate a unique pattern or design. You can choose a shabby chic or distressed look, or let the beauty of the wood grain show through a stain or color wash.
Whether your chairs already have paint or a stain on them or you`re working with bare wood, you`ll need to prime the wood first. If the paint is chipped or the wood is damaged, you`ll need to repair those areas to provide a smooth surface for the paint.
As for decorating small kitchen tables, there`s no need to skimp. Use rounded-edge placemats to save corner space, petite centerpieces (one of our favorites is a collection of painted bud vases, each filled with a single flower) or pretty candlesticks. Just leave room for your guests to talk over the decorations—nobody wants to spend their evening having a conversation with a vase of sunflowers.
