If you are thinking of doing the job yourself you need to have the know-how of the process to get it done as well as have the time to put into the project of taking apart the old chairs and replacing the cloth, and likely the padding underneath, with new materials.

Furniture can be tricky; it's arrangement even more so. The best thing to do is arrange your chairs with enough space in between them for you to move.

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.
