New Dining Room Chairs

Hey guys I'm back. I have not forgotten about "A Place Called Home". My life have been a bit crazy however working on projects help to keep me sane,  I have been busy in the house. I love blogging and reading blogs so I'm committing to posting again.

Can someone agree with me that decorating your home just never seems to be complete. I  thought that I was finished with my office until I scored a beautiful sunburst mirror from HomeGoods and a pair of  seriously markdown lamps from Marshalls. I'll show you guys the new additions soon.

This post is an update on my dining room chairs. You can read about my SA score herehttp://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=8179634726812403835#editor/target=post;postID=3544278595044270835

                               I gave each chair a fresh coat of spray paint in a black gloss.



 I was on the hunt for some fabric after getting the leg repaired. I wanted the fabric for the chair seat to bring a pop of color to the room. After a visit to Loomcraft Fabric Warehouse I found the perfect fabric. I chose Paradise Driftwood fabric by Trina Turk. I immediately fell in love with the fabric it had a bold punch of yellow and the grey matched my wall color perfectly. I had seen this fabric online for $112.00 dollars a yard. Well I liked the Asian inspired motifs of the pattern, with the medallion print it was completely modern and dramatic. But the price for the fabric online was way out of my budget. 

I was totally smitten when the sales clerk quoted me the price at $5.00 dollars per yard.
My next step in this project was to research a great upholstery shop to get that outdated fabric replaced.  
I chose Slipcover Plus Upholstery in Oak Park, IL, to bring my chairs back to life. The shop owner Anthony did an excellent job, and the price was within my budget. I was totally happy with his work.

I love my chairs. I still need to purchase a rug for this room. 
During a Internet search I ran across these  pictures of my chairs.
What projects are you guys working on? Please share.
