Mini-chairs

Picked these up at the thrift store, along with a 99-cent can of spray paint. This is what I ended up with:


Well no, not all of that, but this is what I have to work with. I want some kind of arrangement that looks cute enough to hang on the wall.
Combo #1, needed more color?


Combo #2, still not quite the razzle-dazzle I am looking for.


Combo #3???


Hmmm, any suggestions?? In my brain I have beautiful blue walls, like the ones you see in all the new cottage-style, coastal style magazines. And an unlimited budget with which to adorn my mini-chairs in glorious, exotic seashells and something covered in jute.

In reality, I am packing my house to move back across the country, and my husband is diligently repainting the fingerprints on the walls with the normal shade of white found in rentals. Is there such a thing as rental-beautiful magazine? We do live on a budget, so that we don't have to live crisis-to-crisis like most. And besides, isn't having everything covered in cardboard just as lovely as jute?? Good thing my kids are cute, and my husband is so handsome they sort of make up for my lack of home decor!!

On a side note, please forgive my photography. I have this super-cute, and super-ornery two year old that just figured out she is tall enough to reach onto the counter. On top of said counter she found my camera. And the rest is history, I found it, turned on, lens crooked, bearing that fatal message...LENS ERROR...ugh. So my phone is my camera for now, and yes for those of you who remember, it was about this time last year that I had camera trouble also.

I'm the last one to give any decor advice. I think they're cute and hope you show us pictures of what you do with them.

The chairs are cute...

I am so 'decor' illiterate...if there even is such a thing. ;o} I can sew fabrics and pick out things in my head that will look so cute and they usually turn out just as planned, but when it comes to the house...it's the total opposite. I have ideas and then when i put them into motion...YIKES!
