I promised myself (and my husband) no more dining sets in my shop!
They are a ton of work, take up too much space and some can be just a plain ol' pain!
However, when my friend Cheri spotted this for me, and it was such a steal...
you kind of have to break the rules!
We are keeping this one (for a while anyway! HA!)
I told you yesterday about "moving" our dining room...I mean, moving the dining table
from the back of the living room to a small little corner of the kitchen.
You can read more about why and how I did that, HERE.
Here is a before...this is an antique pedestal table with the claw feet that I love.
It also had four pressed back chairs that were also in great condition.
The top of the table had been used...really used!
I just needed to give this table a little "update," making it perfect for our home.
I mixed up my own Chalk-Like Paint, super easy recipe! The base color I used
was Do It Best brand...in "Antique White."
Yep, I painted it right there...in my kitchen. Fast and easy project...
I scuffed the edges to give it a natural distressed look...can someone get that girl a manicure? GEEZ!!!
Wiping it off really well with a damp, clean rag...just to make sure all the dust particles were off.
I like to use Polycrylic to clear most of my projects...SUPER easy to work with.
This is especially nice on a piece such as dining table...that is going to get lots little fingerprints!
I LOVE the big pedestal...and claw legs.
Love these pressed back chairs...
I liked my finished product...but, something just wasn't right????
I turned the table and chairs slightly so that a chair was not pushed up against the blinds (that need to be cleaned!) in the back. Simple change...and it fits SO much better!
This little round pedestal is perfect for our space and just the four of us.
(I do have a large leaf to insert, making it a large oval...perfect for small gatherings and dinner parties!)
Rug shopping now?? I think I may need a rug...or a hide?? Something fun to hunt for now!
Have a FUN Friday!!
Love & Junk~
