All about the brights is right. These babies came from the “Free” section on Craigslist (you may also recognize them stuffed into the car on the “Prius Problems” post.)
This picture gives you a good idea of how much difference some color can make. I’m still debating putting a coat of lacquer on the chairs.
When I sent this photo to my mom, all she said was “weird.” If this is weird, I really don’t mind. The most important thing to remember when picking out, buying, or refinishing something is to stick with what you like, what makes you happy. After all, you’re the one that is going to be looking at it every day. Why not love it?
