Dining Set Makeover

When we moved into our North Shore Bungalow, several pieces of furniture came with the house.  The kitchen table and chairs were one of them.

I am not a fan of light colored wood.  As soon as we moved the table and chairs to the dining room I immediately knew that not even a pretty table cloth will work.  I knew I was going to have to paint it.

This picture was taken today (9/17/14) of the chairs out on the deck preparing for their transformation.

I used Americana Decor chalk paint in Carbon.  The 16 oz. container was enough for three chairs so I will need to head back to Home Depot to get another jar to paint the fourth  and last chair.

Here is the table after I sanded and stained the top with the wood color I love.  I then used Americana Decor Everlasting chalk paint for the legs and skirts.  I used Annie Sloan's clear and dark wax for the finishing touch on the whole table.

It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.  I started last Friday and finished the following Tuesday.  It helped that we had a beautiful Autumn day, in the 60's cool and dry.

I'm thrilled with the end results, I can now move on to my next project. :)

Until next time,
