Table and Chairs, chairs and table, Table and CHAIRS

For the last month or so, I've been on a hunt for a table and chairs for our new home. One table down and now EIGHT chairs to go. Since its extremely hard to find a set of 8 chairs, I'm going for all random. I'm asking for friends and family to keep an eye out at yard sales, antique malls, peddlers malls, your own home, etc. If you see muted colored chairs in decent shape LET ME KNOW!!! Here's somewhat of the style I'm looking for.

I'm actually fine if they don't have the wicker seat. This isn't exactly what I have in mind but it could work.

We are storing the table in Patrick's parents office for the time being. I'll be taking a picture on Thursday and putting it up soon.

It makes me oh so happy when I actually make something and it turns out the way I wanted. Here's a present project I just finished up. (It's a nursing cover and burp cloths)
I put boning in the neck so that nursing mom can see her baby. And little pockets in the inside corners for wash cloths, pacifiers, nursing stuff, etc.
Too bad every time I get done sewing, its night time and that's a terrible time to take pictures in our apartment. Oh well.
