Yesterday I shared with you my dining room, but what I did not really cover was the new look of my dining room table and chairs. Over the last month or so I have given it a bit of a face lift, but I have been trying to get the right look for our dining set for years.
The oak table is one I inherited from my parents garage. I love that is old. Unfortunately the chairs that came with it were old, rickety and needing some serious repair.
We ended up with this number...
However, when we got to our new place, I just wasn't feeling the rectangle and decided to bring up the round table, but use the new, more stable chairs...
And as things happen around my house, one day I decided the top of the table needed to be sanded. So I broke out the sander and got to work.
I then used a bit of bleach, then some pickling stain.
After having the top completed, I knew that paint was the way to go for the chairs. I am loving the Dovetail Gray color. By painting it in this gray I am now OK with the shape of the chairs.
