UPDATING THE DINING ROOM

This was the starting point - 4, fancy, formal, not cottage-y at all, dining chairs.
Isn't it amazing what a little fabric can do?
I'm not sure I can actually do a slipcover anymore without buttons down the back! The do add interest to an otherwise uninteresting fabric.
The new 'dresses' for these chairs warmed up the room.
And my client got the cottage look she wanted. The window treatments were updated as well, but for some reason, the shots came out all dark, so I can't show you those.
