Pink Saturday


I've had my dining room set for years and it was originally yellow pine. A few years ago I painted them a pale pink and recovered the green plaid seats with this great french toile. I also added the applique to the seat backs. I just love this picture of me and my kids at Zuma beach. It was taken by Valerie Tabor-Smith. I got the tea cup and saucer from the local dollar store for 1.50.
This pink pleated shade is from the Rose Bowl Swap Meet. Anyone want to join me on Oct 12 for a field trip to the Rose Bowl? Have a great Pink Saturday!

I love what you've done with your chairs, and that toile is one of my favorites.

And, that lamp shade is gorgeous. What a special picture.

Love it all, especially the pink dining chairs and toile seats! You did a great job! Can you believe that I have lived in Southern California for 25 years and I have never been to the Rose Bowl! I'm waiting for my husband to take me, so it may be another 25 years! Hope to see you at Very Vintage in Agoura!
