Help!! advice on chairs needed please, plus Mitmots tray makeover.

Sneaked these photos in as Mitmot finally received her tray today.


When she heard I painted Mitty very generously sent me some lovely French trays and a breadboard (Pin up Girl), but would not take any payment for them.


She asked if I would paint this tray for her like I did a mirror in one of the SCC swaps


The result.....

Ok Ladies I need your advice on these 4 chairs I won on Ebay about a month ago.



What to do with them?....



I am undecided whether to go the same way as the Rocker in my previous post ...or to paint and distress or whether to just sand and clean up and apply a floral motif to the plain wood on the back and seat






To do them each different but coordinating?






To sell in pairs or singulally?






So your advice would be reeeeeeally appreciated please.

Also...........




I can get this table for £10 ...should I? its a BIN on Ebay ...was on before and noone bought but I thought if I bought and either painted and added a centre motif.....or painted just the base and sanded the top and added a motif to the bare wood?





So if I did get the table should I sell with 2 chairs ...or sell all 5 items separate and link to each....ARRRGGGGGHHHH I'm useless at this :)

Link the theme of the table and the 4 chairs - they would look good as a set. The bare wood top sounds good but not sure how that would co-ordinate with the chairs....possibly sand the chairs and add a cream motif to them and paint the table base cream to match? (and cream seat cushions if you were so inclined).

Just idle thoughts ....

A lovely paint job like you did on the rocker would look great. I would sell seperately and give the option in your listing to buy as a set if someone was really interested... you have such a steady hand .... I can almost smell those roses they look so real!

How do you give an option like that Lala if others have put bids on the items singulally?
Rocker was my 1st ebay sale so am a complete novice..

Well I see from SCC that you have made your decision! LOL Brill buys you got. That tray is just out of this world you are so talented. There is the saying "Dont give up your day job" when people are rubbish at things - it the opposite for you - you might one day give up the day job and be a furniture do-er upper and seller. You are so good at it :) xx

I've had a couple of g&t's so it's all a bit too complicated right now but I would sand and paint! M xxxx

Oh, do them like the rocker. Just gorgeous!

Lovely tray. You are so talented!

I'd do the chairs like the rocker and then list individually.

It sounds as if you've made your decision, so I won't muddy the waters by complicating it. I think whatever you do will be brilliant. I absolutely adore what you have done for Mitmot. I can't wait to see how the chairs and little table turn out.
