Dining Chairs

I have these beautiful new-to-me dining chairs in the modern Chippendale style and I love them but the wood is a bit chipped and in need of refinishing. I also love the look of painted dining chairs and I'm tempted to go that route instead...Like these by Gary McBournie, via House Beautiful.

I also love the look of one accent chair with a bit of dramatic color or fabric, like this one by (my favorite) Ruthie Summers. The chair is Relay Red by Ralph Lauren and the walls are Green Ground by Farrow & Ball. Such a pretty color!

Or this one by Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield, via House Beautiful. A little less dramatic, allowing the mirror to take center stage:

Here's a great tutorial if I decide to do it my self. But that makes me a bit nervous! We'll see!! So, do my readers have any fun projects you're trying to tackle this summer? I'd love to hear!
