Ever since we built the benches for the outdoor dining table we knew we wanted to upgrade them to chairs down the road, and use those benches with the cheaper dining table. We love the hand made benches, and they’re great for extra seating, but let’s face it, they’re not the most comfortable seating option out there. Eight outdoor chairs can be an expensive purchase though, because even if you find cheap chairs – like these Röxo ones from Ikea we used for the small dining nook – at 20€ each, they set you back 160€.
But then the other day while I was browsing the Sales section from our local Ikea’s webpage, I found those same chairs in yellow for 5€ each! (Actually, 4.99€). The deal was too good to pass up even if we weren’t fond of the color, so we chose to buy them and decide later on whether to paint them or keep them as is. We hurried to Ikea and bought eight of them before they ran out. After unpacking them (the best thing about these chairs is that they are one of the few things at Ikea that you don’t have to assemble) and plopping them down, here are our two outdoor tables now:
I actually like how the yellow chairs look with the table, I’m just not sure they fit in the overall color scheme from the patio. What would you guys do? Would you paint them another color or keep them as-is?
