When we converted our formal living room into a study we also remodeled the dining room. It needed some character and we desperately needed to change our chandelier. I don't love the table and chairs, but it's definitely low on the priority list of things to replace. I'm hoping I'll be able to update it a bit with a modern graphic print on the seat cushions.
Much better! I actually like my table and chairs so much better now that the room is redone. I still have to decorate. I'm planning on recovering the chair cushions, adding some art, and fixing up the chandelier. I can't wait!
