If you don't think you are up to the work, you can always have someone else do it for you. There are plenty of upholstery companies out there that will be happy to take your old dining chairs and give them a new look, but this can also be a costly endeavor, especially if you have a number of chairs you would like to have redone.
For those looking for something a little more low key, there's always estate sales and yard sales. These are great places to find hidden treasures. Do some searching and you can find some classic fixeruppers. Many chairs can be sanded and painted over; you can add slips or reupholster the seat covers. Additionally, you could add throw pillows for a more cozy, comfortable look. Consider painting a set of similar chairs different colors for a more compelling look. Try sticking to primary colors for a Mondrian-inspired look; or if you prefer one color, try gradations, paint the chairs different shades to achieve a Pantone-ish gradient. Or, if you've found an assortment of mismatched chairs, paint them one uniform color to give the dining room a unified look; each chair retains its distinctive shape and personality, adding depth to the room. For an assortment of mix matched chairs, such as low lying stools, high back chairs etc, stick to a close range of shades. The hodge podge already makes your chairs stand out, so you want to keep things together by choosing one shade, for example, dark walnut or light blonde.
Chairs are particularly meant to offer some sense of belonging, apart from the comfort. However, good chairs will offer you more than that. They also give you some sense of belonging. From the moment you take your position at the table in that chair, you should experience what some people might term a magnificent moment. Whenever you sit down for a meal, you should be very comfortable and relaxed to that, a feeling that the chairs offer very well.
