We bought this dining room table from a guy on craigslist when we bought our new house at the end of July.  I finally got around to recovering the chairs for it. 

This is what they looked like when we got it:



this is what was underneath the ugly red vinyl (cute, but VERY dirty):


and this is what I did to them.  fabric is Etsuko Furuya that I got from Reprodepot.com

Just that little fabric on those seats tied that whole room together. Congratulations!  Also congratulations on your new house... looks like a real cutie!

thanks!  the house is covered in built-ins.   the only problem is it makes it very difficult to place furniture in certain areas.  but i love them too!

I can't help but be amazed that someone chose that red vinyl as a means of improvement!

Anyway, I love your dining room... everything has a very nice curvy flow to it.  I, too, am now jealous.
