Coastal Living ResidenceShabby-chic Style Dining Room, Tampa
Keeping with the coastal feel of the rest of the home, we painted this room a nice wheat color and installed tall, crisp, white wainscoting with a shelf for the homeowners to keep sea shells. Then we took their existing dining table, painted it white, and slipcovered their chairs with white linen fabric. Above the table we hung an antique crystal chandelier and painted the homeowners' sideboard white to complete the look.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Spruce up your seatingIf your dining chairs are looking a tad tired and shabby, disguise them with simple, chic slipcovers.Plump for hard-wearing cotton or linen in plain white or cream that can be chucked in the washing machine after the big day is over. If you’re a dab hand with a needle and thread, you could try making your own (if your numbers are small, that is). Otherwise, consider hiring covers and get a professional finish to your seating plan.
