We’re in the middle of turning our 80’s style house into something a little more appealing and far more inviting. And when I say we’re in the middle of it, I really mean that we started four years ago and there’s no end in sight.
My husband and I are not especially handy and we are especially busy! We’re also
cheap thrifty so everything is a DIY project around here.
But there is one room in our house that has turned into a beyond beautiful spot for our family.
It’s our eating area.
A special thanks to ZUO Mod for giving my family eight gorgeous chairs in exchange for sharing their beautiful product with you.
Good thing too. With three boys, we’re going to spend 85% of our time in this room!
We faux shiplapped the walls (tutorial coming soonish) and painted them a crisp white. What a transformation! But our dining room chairs were sadly out of place with their scratched paint and missing rungs. And they certainly didn’t fit the farmhouse motif.
When I saw these chairs by ZUO Mod (Elio Dining Chairs in the gunmetal finish) I knew these would be perfect.
The Elio Dining chair in Gunmetal finish is industrial perfection. Whether you are outfitting an entire table or a single desk, its sturdy design and stack-ability will definitely leave a lasting impression.
I wanted something that could handle the abuse of kids. That ruled out anything with fabric. The metal and wood are so easy to wipe down. It keeps me from being too upset when the boys spill spaghetti on themselves.
These chairs are also super sturdy with the weight being predominately toward the bottom. With our other chairs, our boys kept finding ways to knock them over, fall out of them and generally hurt themselves. That ended when we got these high quality chairs!
These really bring the room together; the whole kitchen in fact. The style is dreamy and fits with my whole “Fixer Upper” theme. The combo of metal and wood just speaks to me!
ZUO Mod has all sorts of hip furniture for the office, living room, dining room, even the outdoors! And they’re totally drool worthy!
