Porch rocking chairs will not only add comfort to your front porch, but they also give a "come and stay a while" feel for anyone that comes over. Rocking chairs have been around for years on front porches because they make the perfect place for sitting and enjoying conversation.
Choosing chair covers for your chairs also gives you a fantastic amount of flexibility as to the way your dining room will end up looking. You can choose from a wide range of different colors and fabrics. It is your choices as to whether you buy one set of high-quality covers which you will use to cover your chairs all of the time, or whether you select a number of different good-quality but inexpensive covers, allowing you to swap them around regularly, thus allowing you to refresh the look of your room as often as you want.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
Chair covers for your dining room chairs are an excellent idea, especially if you have young children. With children, accidents do happen, and food can easily get spilled, especially if the food is relatively liquid or has a higher oil content. Some children may even be inclined to wipe their greasy fingers on the chairs after they have eaten, even if they are given a napkin to use! Spills, stains and oily marks can be quite difficult to remove from your chairs, unless you have chair covers. Removable covers will allow you to take off the cover if it gets messy, and then wash it properly, away from the chair. If you have young children, investing in inexpensive, machine washable covers could be a brilliant idea for you.
Likewise a selection of a subtle, pale tint, tone or shade of the primary color of the wall may produce a beautiful impression when the same color is picked up by accents in the room. Thus a medium blue wall might have a smooth, soft gray-blue chair rail, with corresponding gray-blue cushions on the sofa and runners on the incidental table.
If you are preparing a baby's room or play room, think about devoting one wall or part of a wall to pegged molding. In a child's room such pegs could substitute closets, or allow a wide range of packs, bags, and looped toys to be hung up out of the way. Keep in mind that chair molding could include practical attributes such as this.
