Dining Room Chair Reveal!

Happy Monday to you Lovelies!  Remember my craigslist chairs from last week?  Well I gave them a makeover and today I’m showing them off.  I knew from the start I wanted black chairs.  Black is so chic, mixes with everything, and makes a bold statement around my Docksta Table.  A solid back may have felt heavy, so I love that the caning allows light to peak through.  As for the black and white zig-zag upholstery?  A happy accident.  I had the fabric laying around and I sorta threw them on there to see how it would look.  Well, I love it long time, so it’s here to stay.
I know many of you thought I would go more colorful, but I have so much color elsewhere in my space that I wanted these chairs to be more neutral.  The chevron pattern is big and bold and I love the tone on tone effect.  It feels glamorous to me.  Maybe I’m being inspired by Mary McDonald.  (You Million Dollar Decorator watches will get that.)
So there ya have it.  My new dining chairs.  Do you like?  Another piece of the Bohemian Chic puzzle is now in place.
PS- EXCITING NEWS!  I’M HONORED TO BE FEATURED IN THE FALL ISSUE OF HOUSE OF FIFTY!  Have you guys checked out this new online magazine yet?  This issue is chocked full of goodies.  Christine, of Bijou and Boheme, wrote an excellent article about “How to Create an Eclectic space” on page 52.  That’s where you can find me.  Please go gobble up the whole thing.
