We've always liked the tidy tailored look that slipcovers can bring to old dining room chairs. But what about these? The covers are very lightweight, allowing you to see the decorative wood chair backs through the fabric...

We can't quite decide for ourselves. Part of us likes the ephemeral quality of the light, gauzy fabric used here. The other part of us prefers a heavier duck cloth that would cover the chairs completely and read more cleanly...
