since we're on dining chairs, here's a little tip from chicago apartment therapy.
spice up a plain ikea dining chair (can't tell exactly which from the pic) with a neat leg job. simply paint the bottom of each leg with the colour of your choice.
it does add a touch of luxe, doesn't it? if painting is not your thing, silver leafing the bottom of the legs is an option. link.
