Rita wanted to really go bold, but keep her dining table and chairs at the same time (she lucked into these four chairs and table at a garage sale for just $6), so she found an ingenious way to spice up the set.

Gorgeous! What an ingenious way to add lots of pattern and brighten up the room.

From Rita:

This material is what inspired me to paint the living room navy in the first place. I knew I wanted to make this fabric the focal point in the dining room, but I wasn’t sure how. Then it hit me: I should make slipcovers for our dining room chairs. The results were stunning. I love how much pattern they add in the space and the white table adds lots of contrast and light to the navy room. Together, they really make a statement!

Thank you Rita!
