One big surprise I got – the new slipcovers I got from Ikea are way too big. Although the name of the stool is the same…sigh…at least I don’t have to worry about shrinking these!
The teal should do a much better job of hiding stains – that was a big motivation there. I love how it plays against the light, kind of dull blue of the other stools (bigger and cushier, for me and the hubby):
It also plays very well with chartreuse – because you know, chartreuse is the new neutral! I painted the legs of that coffee table chartreuse a couple of years ago. Andrew built that coffee table like…15 years ago. I can’t tell you how many colors those legs have been, but the top is maple, hard as a rock. You know, when the kitchen’s clean…it doesn’t look half bad. It get’s cluttered and dirty so fast though!
