Use slipcovers to give your room a natural, creative flair. Tightly fitted on top and loosely flowing on the bottom, the cream slipcovers add a touch of charm to the dainty, cottage-style sitting area. Set alongside a rustic wood table, the neutral colors contrast nicely with the entire design.
Ready-made slipcovers are available in most home-decor stores and home catalogs. They come in a variety of styles and sizes. Custom-order slipcovers are also an option but can be quite costly. If you’d prefer a custom look but can’t afford a professional, you might want to try making your own slipcovers.
Slipcovers can also work wonders with furniture pieces that don’t quite match, in either color or style. Coordinating slipcovers can turn mismatched furniture into a matched set or instantly transform the old couch you inherited from Grandma into a beautiful new sofa.
Soften a bold color, like this bright red, with a neutral color. The solid green and floral taupe pillows balance the bold colors without clashing. Coordinate different patterns with different shades of the same color for a colorful and unique touch to a basic couch.
A chaise-style sofa fits perfectly inside this sitting nook with brick walls. For more formal lounging, a tufted, white sofa offers an inviting seating space for conversation.
You can also paint vinyl or fabric seats. For vinyl, you can use a kit with the same type of products used by automobile seat restoration professionals, or choose spray paint that is designed to adhere to vinyl. Be sure to clean the seats thoroughly before painting, following the instructions on the products you have purchased.
Whether your chairs already have paint or a stain on them or you`re working with bare wood, you`ll need to prime the wood first. If the paint is chipped or the wood is damaged, you`ll need to repair those areas to provide a smooth surface for the paint.
To paint a fabric seat, you can use either a spray paint made for fabric or brush-on paints designed for that purpose. Again, let your creativity guide you to create a unique design.
As for decorating small kitchen tables, there`s no need to skimp. Use rounded-edge placemats to save corner space, petite centerpieces (one of our favorites is a collection of painted bud vases, each filled with a single flower) or pretty candlesticks. Just leave room for your guests to talk over the decorations—nobody wants to spend their evening having a conversation with a vase of sunflowers.
Drop-leaf tables are good for a variety of reasons. Not only do they look great tucked against a wall with the leaves down, you can actually feed two people, one at either end, without extending them. They can serve as storage between meals, as well, for decorative items like placemats and candlesticks, or as a place to do homework, like a de facto island.
