My new, and dare I say, sexy dining room has me questioning my original design plan. Maybe it’s the deep purple buds on my Redbud tree, or the fact that if I had to choose an actual favorite color other than gray, white or black, it would be dark purple, but I’m really digging the original fabric on my dining room chairs. It’s too bad the fabric is torn in places, catches cat hair like nothing else and is known to cause a rash.
Rob is ready to reupholster them. Isn’t it just like me to moan and groan about those ugly chairs until we’re ready to actually do it and then, ta-da! I can’t part with them!
I’m really hoping I can find a replacement fabric that I love and won’t regret. I had originally wanted to reupholster them in a white vinyl. White because everything else is white and vinyl because it won’t stain like white. We have a pukey cat and two nephews. I want to make sure these chairs stay looking nice for a while.
But should I do something more “sexy” than white vinyl?
All sexy rooms call for purple velvet. It’s a known fact. But I don’t think I can get away with velvet in a dining room. At least not my dining room. Is purple vinyl the next best thing? I promise not to make it sparkly and slick and look like it came out of a ’72 Dodge Challenger.
