We bought a metal table a while back on eBay and hadn't been able to find a colour I approved of. Or one that wasn't Hammerite that I'd let MOH buy. Recently I discovered that Farrow & Ball do an outside wood and metal paint, so now there should be no excuse about only having a limited palette to choose from.
The colours in the running are these:
I am still on the look out for a couple more chairs, which will be hopefully a bit closer! I've promised that if I have the metal chairs to go with the table I'll get rid of the four older wooden chairs I had in my previous house. I don't need them to match but I know when we get to that bit MOH will be twitchy about the mix and match approach.
