Our dining room set was given to us by John's aunt and uncle. I like that the table has two leaves, but other than that, I'm not really a fan. It's well-built, but just not my style. The worst part for me was the rattan backs on the chairs. They looked especially dated and weren't standing up to use by our young family. So, I decided to invest in some dining room slipcovers. I used a simple pattern from Fabric-by-Fabric One Yard Wonders and fabric that I got at 60% off. Each slip cover only cost me $10 and I'm happy with the change.
