Rustic Dining Chairs
I recently finished updating my rustic dining chairs and they look amazing!
My dining room goals list is almost done!
It’s really good to make a list of goals for a specific room or else I think I would go back and forth on my decisions or not do any of them at all.
Now that my list is nearing completion, it’s feeling good. I especially love the results of this recent DIY project.
Sanding each chair leg was time consuming but worth it as I really love my rustic dining chairs now!
See the difference? I love them.
These chairs were bought just from Home Sense but this has been my idea for them since I bought the chairs three years ago.
There is so much dark wood in this room it needed some brightening up.
The chairs look more rustic now. They definitely have more character!
We recently added this open shelf above the cowhide dresser.
I purchased the metal brackets from Etsy from this shop.
The wooden shelf? It’s a drawer front from this dresser.
Okay, here’s what I’ve accomplished and what’s left (almost done!!!):
Paint dining room walls. Sand down table top and paint legs with AS Chalk Paint. Sand down white cabinet to a chippy white. Sand chair legs.
- Paint grain sack stripes on bench. —> bench has since been moved out of the dining room, I’m going to update this cabinet after input from my lovely readers!
Replace white cabinet. Redecorate and reposition furniture.
- Center chandelier above table. (newly added!)
I have a recent post on How to Easily Update Furniture Legs
Your chairs look great and fit in nicely 🙂
Thanks Shal 😉
Love the chairs! Perfect update!
Thanks Allison 😉
Wow, the chair legs look so much better! Would you consider sanding back the table top to match? Our dining table and chairs have dark wood also and now I’m wondering what loveliness might be underneath. Thanks for the inspiration. Your dining room looks beautiful! Julie
Thanks Julie! I sanded the table top and painted the legs a year ago (search ‘dining table makeover’ and you’ll find it). The table would look great in a rustic state too. I have a project for the cabinet coming up that should lighten up the room even more.
My ENTIRE house has goals…
I’m wanting to get it sold…and downsize.
Love what you did to your chairs AND …love the whole look of this room.
Thanks Pat! I know, there are always so many things to do. Good luck to you!
Love your legs Jamie. I may have to try it on mine. 😉 Thanks for sharing.
What a great idea. I have almost the same chairs and now you’ve made me look at them in a different way.

Love this little touch 🙂 We are featuring it Monday at YDTT! 🙂 Thanks for linking up!
Your dining room looks so gorgeous! I love that you took those dark stained chairs and juxtaposed the rustic with the sophisticated lines. LOVE. Featuring at The Handmade Hangout at Redouxinteriors tomorrow 🙂
Thanks again, Karen!
These turned out great! I’ve been thinking of sanding down my bedroom furniture to achieve this look. Now I’m officially inspired!
I know, I’ve been contemplating the same thing!!
I love what you did with the chair legs! It makes them look a bit like driftwood. It always amazes me how a small change can make such a big difference in a room. I’m so glad you linked up with us at Your Turn To Shine! I’ve really enjoyed finding your blog 🙂
Thanks again, Amy!
The chairs look perfect sanded. I love your entire dining room space!
Thank you so much 😉
