I worked a little makeover magic in my coastal dining room this past week with some help from Serena & Lily. I’ve been eyeing these gorgeous Carson dining chairs since they added them to their site. I just love the woven detailing, perfect for a coastal or lake house setting. I chose the black chair option, which prompted a makeover of the rest of my dining chairs.
Coastal Dining Room Chairs
When I ordered my original dining chairs several years ago they were supposed to be a gray color. In reality they were a little closer to off white, hardly gray at all.
I was hoping for more of a contrast with our white walls, but after the whole building process I was just happy to have chairs to sit in. I figured I could always paint them down the road. Well, I did just that a few weeks ago!
I should maybe back up and say my 10 year old son decided to try his best superman impression off my old slipcovered parsons chairs…which resulted in skinned knees…and broken chair springs. He actually attempted this super hero feat last winter, and I’ve been warning people not to sit on them ever since. I was always good at warning others, but I can’t tell you how many times I forgot and almost fell through to the floor.

Obviously it was time to find a better solution. I’m always excited to partner with Serena & Lily. Not only to share their gorgeous Carson Chairs, but to tell you about their new shopping option. We all know lead times and shipping have been a little crazy this last year. Well now you can filter your shopping experience by availability. They have options for items that will arrive within 1-2 weeks, as well as eligibility for 2 day shipping.
This is great for the upcoming holiday season, especially if you tend to be a last minute shopper like me. Serena & Lily is always one of my go to spots to find a special pillow, or decor item that is a showstopper in our home. Our new chairs are no exception. The details are even better in person!
Once I decided on the Carson end chairs, it was time to give a little makeover to the rest of my dining chairs. I hit them with several light coats of satin black spray paint. Along with a clear top coat, just to be extra cautious.
We have black accents throughout our home with lighting, picture frames, and hardware. I love how the black dining chairs add to the flow of our home now.
I can’t believe how much this changed the feeling of our dining room. It was such a great way to update the whole space without having to replace all 8 chairs. I just love the contrast!
I also added these beautiful Poetto Vases as a centerpiece to the table. I love that the white color blocking on the bottom hides my faux stems. They work so well for real flowers too, but unfortunately hydrangea season is done here in Michigan. These vases add a great coastal touch to any space.
Serena & Lily actually carries chairs almost identical to my new black ones, and they are already painted black for you! I’ll link them below, along with all my other Serena & Lily faves.
