I Danced to the Furniture Shuffle in the Dining Room

I danced to the Furniture Shuffle in the Dining Room the other day.

It’s definitely my favorite dance.

Who were my dancing partners?

My Ethan Allen Martha Washington chairs that I just had reupholstered.

Now that Martha and Ethan can dance!

If you remember, that pair were in the bay window sitting area of the dining room.

Where did they go?

They earned their place at the table!

They won the Mirror Ball Trophy!

My Dining Room is always filled with great light, especially in the morning.

In the Fall and Winter, it is especially filled with light when the leaves

have fallen from the trees.

I am a bit concerned that the bright sunlight to come

may fade the fabric of the chairs.

So Ethan took Martha’s hand and danced with her across the dining room floor.

And the Wood Arm Chairs, joined the dance too.

Blue and White pillows were placed in each chair for added color, texture and comfort!

The fabric of the newly recovered chairs

coordinate so very well with the existing oatmeal color of the Pottery Barn side chairs, 

and the valances too!

It was a great dance and the band played on!

    Love your dining room–so elegant, yet soooo cozy, and the upholstery is beautiful! I’m in the midst of reupholstering several rooms that sorely need it. Hugs!

  19. The chairs look perfect at the dining table. I’m sure it was a wise decision to get them out of the direct sunlight. Love the way the light pours in there.
