To Slipcover or Not??

Well I am at it again, redoing a room :) I am pleased with most all the rooms in my home, but there are still a few I would like to redo. Our dining room is first on my list. A new paint color is not an option as I just had it painted about a year ago. Really I like the color, just not the curtains and all the dark furniture. It makes the space feel so closed in. After lots of thinking and searching I have decided to do a white/off-white drape. I know boring, but I am so drawn to neutrals and I never get tired of seeing them! Now what to do with all the dark furniture?? Slipcover the chairs? Get two new upholstered end chairs? Paint the chairs white? You thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!

Or should I leave the 4 middle chairs the way they are and do  2 upholstered end chairs like these??
