Do you ever have one of those pieces that just sits and sits in your basement (or garage) forever? Well, if you’re a furniture painter, you might! I had this table and chairs for far too long before painting them. I’m not sure why I waited so long…I’m totally in love with how they turned out!
Here’s what they looked like before. Well, after the hubby sanded the top of the table. Still trying to get him used to having a blogger for a wife!
The chairs had two layers of old fabric on them and most of the bottoms were falling apart. We cut new wood bottoms, added a bit more padding, and then recovered the chairs. Aren’t they much cuter now?!
Painting a table and chairs is always a tedious job, but it’s so rewarding! I love how a little paint can give things a new life!
And even though I painted this classic piece of furniture, I *hope* I still gave it a timeless, classic look with my makeover. I wanted it to keep its charm, but still have a little kick!
The table is painted with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Country Grey with Old White stripes and the chairs are painted in Old White.
Doesn’t it just look so ready for summer?
I brought the dining set to my booth at Painted Farmgirl and Friends once I was finished with its makeover. I hope it finds a home soon so the new owner can enjoy it for a long time to come!
Don’t forget! I’ll be back on Thursday with my Summer Celebration Series post! I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on!
