Finally, my blog has a completed home project!(and lots to come)
I wasn't planning to refinish my table, because I was convinced I wanted a new one. The chairs (see top pic) were so old, broken, and so very 70's. Yes. And UGLY!
But then I found a whole set of darling chairs, and I got so excited to refinish my table. :) They all just needed some paint and new upholstery. But way cheaper than a new table.
Yes, this was the awful before photo. How do you like the orange and gold tacked upholstery.
First, I gave it all two coats of white primer.
Then I gave it a coat of off-white satin paint. Then I antiqued and sanded it around all the edges.
I recovered the chairs with some new fabric (which I love!).
When I got these chairs, they definitely had some dirty cushions, but that just made the make-over even more rewarding! ;)
I love being able to choose a fabric that will accent the new colors in my dining room. These cushions got a couple of coats of scotch guard. I sprayed them outside, because it is not good to breathe it while being sprayed. Especially for my little ones!
I think I never really appreciated the pedestal on my table, but with it painted and antiqued, I love its design. This may be my favorite feature. :)
I'm still working on decor for the whole room since it used to be painted red, and now its tan and goldish-yellow. I'm thinking of a pretty fall table-runner next, but I'm still so happy with the results so far.
