I would like to share another before and after picture. When I moved into my new apartment my bar table and bar stools did not fit into the kitchen, so as a temporary solution I used two outdoor folding chairs and a half-moon table. The outdoor chairs I previously used on my balcony when I lived in the Netherlands and I bought the bistro set at Ikea in Delft. However, in my current apartment here in Stockholm I don’t have a balcony. There was only one issue, the wood chairs did not fit into my all black and white apartment, so I gave them a painting job.
I painted both the chairs and a half-moon table white, and with the black steel legs they fit perfectly into my interior.
Nowadays I have a proper dining table and wood chairs, but I have kept the outside bistro chairs. Today one is used as a desk chair and the other is in the hallway as a seat if I have tricky shoes to put on, or to throw my gloves or purse on.
The striped black and white chair pad/cushion is from Hemtex. http://www.hemtex.se/
