Dining Room Chairs

We moved into our home June 2008 after renting for years.  Once we moved in, I became very anxious to make changes that best suit my our taste.  The inside of the entire house was painted the color as seen in the picture below.

After living with the color for some time, my husband and I decided to make some changes.  So we gave the dining room a new look.

Once we changed the wall color it was time to update the dining room chairs.  I really don't know what I was thinking with those microfiber chairs.  It's amazing how my taste has evolved! LOL
 
I purchased fabric online to recover the chairs.  I really like the chevron pattern, but I was nervous about the print being too bold for the room.  I took a risk and I couldn't be more pleased!

To cover the chairs, I cut the fabric to size and used my staple gun to attach it to the existing cushion.

.
I really love the new look!

  2. I never knew the name of that pattern until now. Chevron...making a mental note! It is funny how our tastes change. I never thought I'd have grey walls in my house.
    Your chairs look very high end and gorgeous! The paper whites really compliment the new look! I LUUURVE IT! xoxo
