Dining Room Chairs Makeover

I will be the first to admit, I can be quite the procrastinator sometimes. I have had the fabric for my dining room chairs sitting around for probably 2 months now. This past weekend I finally recovered them. And by I, I mean my dad. Yes, I like him to do all my handy work and he is an expert at recovering chairs. He gets the fabric perfectly tight and lined up everytime. Nothing was wrong with the fabric before, I actually like it, I just was ready for a change to brighten up our dining room.

BEFORE







THE FABRIC




AFTER





Here are a few other pics from the dining room.

My Beloved Wine Rack. My goal is for this baby to always be fully stocked. Above it you may notice the painting I did a few months back.






Last is Matt's favorite area and one of the reasons he was so set on buying this house, the Elusive Wet Bar. I am not allowed in this area. He says it is his personal space and I can't decorate it. Please notice his marathon medal hanging from the ice fridge and the giant cannon ball on the counter, drives me nuts but I leave it alone! The man needs his space!

They turned out fantastic! It adds just the right amount of pattern to the space (c: And while I understand that the menfolk need their own space in the house, why can't they at least take some cues from their stylish women and at least *TRY* a little??? (c: Don't worry, I have the same issue with the hubbs and his "areas"...*SO* off limits...(c;

Love the fabric-- such a good pop in the room! And if you're interested in keeping the wine stocked, check out Cooper Vineyards (Va)..my friend's dad owns it and we did a wine tasting a few weekends ago and I loved a lot of their wines!
