The fabric on the vintage chairs in our kitchen had been looking a little sad for a while now. That's to be expected since we sit at the table for every meal. I've been wanting to update the fabric for some time and finally chose this gorgeous blue and white buffalo check from Tonic Living. I've been incorporating more blue into the family room and kitchen with some pink and purple accents and both the kitchen and family room feel much cozier.
Here's the before:
And the after:
I love how the updated fabric has completely freshened up the space! And quite honestly, I knew that the old fabric had seen better days, but whoa, it had really seen better days! ha! Though I complain about swapping out fabric on chairs, I have to admit that it is a relatively easy process and the end results are always worth the work!
Did you notice some new additions to the kitchen in the last photo? If you're following along on Instagram or snapchat (elliven_studio) then you may have already seen a sneak peek! But yes, we have a new desk area in the kitchen and you guys, I'm in love! This installation was planned a while ago and I was a wee bit nervous that it would make our kitchen feel much smaller, but hoped that it would do the opposite. To my excitement, the new cabinets have done just as I had hoped and our kitchen certainly feels more complete now! As you can see, they aren't 100% finished. We are still waiting for hardware, a counter and the vent cover in the toe kick. I also need to swap out the shelves in the uppers for glass and I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect chair! We'll get there!
