Let The Dining Room Fun Begin!

Now this may be hard for you some of you to stomach, but my dining room "Theme" is like the local Restaurant & Wine Bar called Rumors East, which is Thick rich textures, fabrics, & Jewel-tone colors.
Below are some of our finds from the local thrift shops. I marked the prices on them because they were unbelievable! The $13 chairs have a beautiful shape and are covered in a 70's green velvet, which I love and it will hurt me to cover over it but that is not in the color scheme.


This beauty was already covered! Oddly enough I had bought this exact fabric to cover the other chairs with before we found this one. I can not express to you all the ways and reasons why I LOVE this chair. It was marked $20 but was half off so only $10.00!

Here are some of the other chairs that came with the dining room table ready to be covered.
Before recovering we had to shine them up and cover any nicks with Old English.
and here is my cute little mommy working hard. That staple gun of hers TERRIFIED my doggles. They were hiding all day.
And here is one of our finished products! Purple -ish upholstery fabric we got on sale in a remnant bin
So not only is all of this beautiful and part of my dream dining room but it was fabulously affordable and a *gift* from my parents! Thanks Mom & Dad!!
More pictures coming soon of the semi- finished room! I am struggling over paint choices so please comment or email me with ideas!
