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. There are plenty of books out there on how to do this process and you may even be able to find a video or two online that will walk you through the process of reupholstering your dining chairs.
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.
There are many things that we can't live without in our homes, and one of them is furniture. We always want the best things at home, which will last longer and pay off the money that we spend on them. Dining chairs are one of those things that add to the beauty of our homes, they attract our visitor's attention, and unite families together.
