Spring has sprung and we are finally get warmer weather over here! Kind of :) High in the 50s, I'll take it over snow any day! My dining room hardly changes through the season, except for Christmas, but I have done a few spring updates in here to share :)

I obviously like Amazon ;)

You know when you have found something you truly like, it's super hard to change it up. This is true for my tablescape. The faux greenery from Ikea is superb; I can't get enough of these eucalyptus stems! I decided to add just another dynamic by adding these candle pillars from Hobby Lobby.

 I also have a new addition to my buffet. First off is the wreath on my sunburst mirror. I love adding a wreath onto it during Christmas, and thought it would be fun to do a spring wreath also.

 I also updated my 3-tier tray and got a new one! I loved the other one, but found this one from Hobby Lobby and just fell in love.

 This side of the buffet hasn't changed much...one of those, if it's not broke, then why fix it type things again :)

This spring, most of my added decor has been with greenery. This faux fiddle leaf fig has added an extra element of it to my dining room. This corner doesn't get much love, so this was the perfect place for it!

My dining room has seen it's fair mix of chairs. When we first got the table, it came with 8 massively huge wood chairs with leather seats.

I actually didn't mind the chairs, I just wanted to freshen up the look years back and put them in the basement to take up space....cuz that's what I do :) It's where I put things that will never see the light of day again. I replaced them with some white slip covered chairs from Ikea. I love the contrast of the white and the dark wood from the table. I love how comfortable they are, how cheap they are, how cheap the slipcovers are, and how my kids can make a huge spaghetti-pile-like-mess on them...literally...and they still clean up great.

But.....I wanted something new. I wanted something a little more casual/elegant. So, I found the slipcovers counterparts at Ikea and put them on the head chairs. These long slipcovers changed the game in here! I just love how they freshened up the space again. The other slipcovers are $9 each. That's like a steal, especially if one gets ruined by play doh or other mysterious stains you would rather not have your guests see. These new ones are a little pricier at $29 each. But, I would say well worth it. When I get around to it, I might opt for doing all 5 chairs in the long covers, but until my kids can learn to keep their food...or play doh...on the table or in their mouth (not the latter on this one ;)) and not on the chairs, the $9 covers are the choice for me.

I do feel like this upped my dining room game. I feel somewhat of an adult with these chairs now. I know. That's weird, but totally true. And yes, now my table does have 3 different style of chairs on it. :) And I don't mind at all. I love how it looks!

Now that I've talked all about my new covers, I should mention what chairs they are. They are the Henriksdal chair from Ikea and are $69 with the short slipcover, or just $60 sans slipcover.

What are you favorite go to chairs? For me, anything that offers style and can clean up great!

  1. Hi Alicia,
    I love your dining room. What a change from the "9 years ago" photo! I'm going to IKEA next weekend and hope to find some of those eucalyptus stems; I really like them with the white. I also like your white metal side chairs; I have similar ones in my dining room in an antiqued orange color and, like yours, they really helped to update the room. You've really done a beautiful job on your home. Happy Easter! ~Cheryl

  2. What a remarkable difference! I love the new colour palette and the table now looks so powerful when surrounded by the pastel shades. I love it!

  3. I just ADORE the way that this new chair slip turned out. Adding a new cushion and fresh fabric to a dated wood chair is a great way to bring it back to life. Thanks for sharing.
