Where were the chairs located and were the seat cushions glued on nailed on? I am implementing this idea for my new dining room table but I'm having difficulty locating "pairs of chairs" all at the same height. I have 2 different pairs so far. I need 2 more pairs.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
The chairs were Vintage finds that were painted & upholstered to match - most chair seats screw in from beneath.

None of these are pairs. Just look for complete mismatches.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

From the initial get-go to the final step, my snow-white terrier housemate was uber-involved. Am I dog-obsessed? Perhaps. Did I purposely choose a dog that would coordinate well with all of my interiors projects? Oh, don't be silly; that's just ridiculous. And when I say ridiculous, I mean yes, of course I did, and don't you dare judge me. While the five chairs are sitting pretty now, they started off sporting much different looks.
Brian Patrick Flynn, the Decor Demon, painted five thrift-store finds in a rich high-gloss red and used stylized trellis-patterned Robert Allen fabric ($22 a yard) on the cushions for a cohesive mod-retro feel. He picked each one for its interesting back. I've seen lone dining chairs like these go for as little as $5 at flea markets, and he spent just $85 on all five chairs.

One way to make mismatched chairs seem more cohesive is to paint them all the same color and provide consistent upholstery, like in this handsome collection.See how to do this
