Slip Covered Dining Chairs

And just like that I'm ready to kick our black and white striped dining chairs to the curb in favor of some pretty slip covered numbers.  We have more legs going on in the dining room than project runway and slips would take care of that!  Still to decide: all matching chairs or accent chairs at the head, trim or no trim?  Hmm...we shall see.  But first I need to get rid of the old ones.  Mr. doesn't know about this yet, but he will soon.  He reads the blog every day.  He's usually good with my decisions   I'll just promise to make him a meatloaf or something ;).

  1. I like the idea of having all the chairs slipcovered--it adds a nice layer of softness to your already-pretty dining room.

  2. I've been considering these as accent chairs at the ends of our new table:

  3. I am so happy with my slipcovered chairs (the Henriksdal armchairs that Ikea discontinued.) I just bleached the slipcovers yesterday and pt them back on and just love them!! Plus they are super comfy. Go for it!

  4. Love it, I am feeling the same way... my husband doesn't read our blog; I think he's afraid of what I'm scheming again!

  7. Craigs List your old ones and bring in the new pretties. I like the look of having different headchairs than the other chairs.

  9. That is so funny that you posted this today. I have just decided to add two white slipcovered chairs to the heads of the table. I want to get a new dining table with all slip covered chairs but I am taking baby steps - for my husband's sake. Your last image was my inspiration when I first came across it. Can't wait to see what you do!

  10. Oh, I vote keep the b & w stripes and go for accents on the end with bold black Greek Key trim. Your new picture is looking very casual-chic! :)
