I have a girlfriend (Tara at Lauren Lane Decor who runs her own very successful furniture refinishing business) who has given me some tips. She does mostly French pieces, and since this is "mediterranean/Spanish" style, I'm going to play that up. Here is the set:

The table has 2 inserts, so it seats 8. There are 2 armchairs and 6 regular chairs. This is the fabric that I've chosen for the 6 regular chairs.
And the fabric for the 2 armchairs:
I've also chosen these 2 knobs but not sure which ones will work. I have to get a closer look at the knobs that are already on there.
Wish me luck on this huge project! I hope to have it done before our Garage Sale in the summer so I can possibly get rid of it then.
