Updated Dinette Set

Remember this post about me piecing together a dinette set? Well, apparently I didn’t. As I was going through some of my blog pics, I realized that I never posted the “after” of my pedestal table, and the chairs have since gotten another makeover too!

I primed it using spray primer.  My husband went ahead and stained the top(it wasn’t the dark walnut that I was hoping for-so eventually it will get another makeover, but it will do for now).

  Love the shininess of it! 

and it didn’t cover the OOPs! spot, read about that HEREIMG_0531

I think I told you about my glazing attempt here, well I used the same “technique”  (and I use that word as lightly as possible, lol) with this table.

Good old acrylic craft paint, diluted . . .

and sponge-brushed on liberally . . .

Very liberally as you can see.

Let it sit for a few minutes, and wipe lightly with a damp rag.

       Wipe even more lightly in the places you want to emphasize.  Like these creases and grooves

                .

Now, here’s a pic to show you a before of the table and chairs.

Here’s an After of the 1st installment of the updated chair-the delusional one, where I thought I was capable of keeping drop cloth cushion covers with my 3 kids-yeah right!
Here’s the Updated version:

    I love the two toned look of the table! I have been searching high and low for a piece of furniture I can transform such as this. The chairs look great painted white. The new color really brightens up your room!

    Beautifully done. It looks like a brand new set. I'm about to do a make over on a very similar table.
