These 20 dining chairs on a budget are sure to make a statement in your home without making much of a dent in your wallet!
As I continue along on my eat-in kitchen makeover plan, I’ve been searching for some new dining chairs. I love the farmhouse table that we got for cheap on Craigslist. The only thing I don’t love about it is the color of the stained portion and I’d rather have white legs. So, a couple of years ago I stripped the table top and re-stained it. I love how it turned out, but don’t love the idea of stripping and staining all of the seats of the chairs as well.
I’ve also considered purchasing new chairs. Because, well …. $400 is worth the time it would take me to sand and stain those … 😂. Or maybe not. It will honestly depend on what is in my bank account when it’s time to make that decision.
A small problem with staining the chairs is that I stained the table top a couple of years ago and I cannot remember what combination of stains I used on it. I’m pretty sure I mixed two together and I didn’t write it down. 😢 So, I’m afraid I won’t be able to figure it out and they won’t look right.
What do you think I should do?
I also really like the mix and match look. I definitely want to buy two rattan chairs for the heads of the table. Although the table is square, so I’m not sure there are heads to the table?? #decorprobs I’ll figure it out, though!
Either way, I’ve been window shopping these past few weeks and wanted to round up some of my favorite dining room chairs on a budget! I try to keep it under the $100/per chair budget, but some are a little higher and some are a lot less! If you are in the market for dining chairs, I know this will be helpful!
Here’s a pro tip for ya, from someone who is definitely not a pro. 😋 Use larger upholstered or wickers chairs with arms at the heads of the table. It could be one of the wicker chairs like I want in my design plans, or it could be a simple upholstered chair. Either way, giving a little differentiation in the chairs will make your table look high end when you really just added a couple of fancy chairs to your budget-friendly side chairs. Right?!
Which chair is YOUR favorite??
