My $5 Garage Sale Beauties

I found 2 of these awesome chairs at a garage sale last year for $5 each. They have been sitting in my garage waiting until I came up with a spot for them. I never forgot about them like I do some things. I just fell in love with the turned legs on the front. Now my dilema...which room do I want to put them in, or do I want to split them up???
I painted one a grayish blue called Contented from Sherwin Williams (a friend gave me the sample that she did not want). I put it in the dining room to hold table linens here.

Or I could paint both of them this color and put one on each side of the table for extra seating. I have been needing some extra chairs in here, but are they too small next to my other chairs???


OR...I could put a coat of poly on this one and put it next to the tub holding my bath supplies for when I finally get to use this dreamy tub.



I love the industrial look of these locker baskets next to the old looking wood on the chair. I might have to keep this one in here. Decisions...Decisions...Any insight you want to give would be ever so helpful! By the way, no sinks in the bathroom yet. This time it is my fault, I was having trouble finding a faucet that I liked, that would fit on the coutertop, that fit into the budget. I think I finally found one that works. I know it is taking soooo long!

Another option for the chairs would be to sell them to me to use in my den--they are perfect for what I've been looking for!! I know that's not an option :) but I really do love them. I like the one by your pretty new tub better than at the kitchen table but I'm sure you'll come up with the perfect plan as you always do.
