Painting Mismatched Vintage Dining Room Chairs To Look Like A Set

Update The Look Of Vintage Dining Room Chairs With New Paint And Fabric 

It is easy to make mismatched vintage chairs look like a set by chooising as color scheme and coordinated fabrics that pull the entire set together. That is exactly what my friend Clyde did when he updated the look of vintage chairs which he is using in in his pink and black hair salon. The table and chairs shown are not a set, but after Clyde added his whimsical touch to these older chairs you really forget about the fact that they are one of a kind chairs redone to look like they all belong with this orphaned table.

Adding a round rug with a similar color and palette underneath the table, also helps to give you the sense of a total package.
