I just had to share the makeover I did on a dining room table and chairs that was recently gifted to me. I had a dining room table that I loved but the leg was broken and we couldn't fix it. So this was perfect!
I had the week of 4th of July off of work so I knew there was no time like the present to get this done. I started by stripping off the stain that was on the table top, sanding it and staining it.
Next I made my own chalk paint and painted the table base and the chairs. It took 2 coats on both to get the cover I wanted.
Next, I recovered the seats with a drop cloth and painted on some stripes in my favorite color. I then put 2 coats of polyurethane on the table top. I could hardly wait to get this in my dining room!
I didn't get a before picture of the whole table but here is a chair and the leaf that I still need to finish so you can see where I started. Such a huge improvement!
And now that it is in my dining room, I just had to play dress up with it!
Aqua is my favorite color so I set the table to match the stripes on the chairs.
Doing this makeover was a lot of work but seeing the final result made it all worth it! Now I want to do this to all the things!
It's amazing what a little imagination and work can do to make something beautiful!
