Dining room refresh in progress....should I paint my chairs?

2 years ago

I'm doing a refresh of my formal Dining Room. In general. looking to lighten, brighten, and make it a bit more eclectic and less formal. I've been back and forth trying to decide whether to paint my chairs. First impressions, anyone?

The rug is new, as is the paint color. New drapes and light fixture are also on order, and the chair seats will be reupholstered whether the chairs are painted or not. If I do paint them, I am thinking of having them lacquered a creamy white. The chair seats would be blue to coordinate with a chinoisserie print which will be on the drapes. Do you see that look working here? Or should I keep the wood tones uniform?
