Dining Room Table Makeover


Happy summer!  I hope your summer is going well!  I have been busy hanging out with my boys and redoing my dining room table. 

Have you ever looked at your furniture and just wanted something different?  

I used to love my dining room table.  I bought the table for my first house.  It was an older house and the naughty wood table looked perfect.  But, it has been awhile since I bought it, and my house has changed.  I want something different.

So...

project makeover dining room table begins!

Here is my my lovely table. 
(Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the whole table so I had to take half of the table since one side is already stripped.)

Nothing wrong with the table, but I just wanted something different. 

I started by stripping the table.  I used Citristrip.  It made it super easy to do.  Spray on and wait 30 minutes.  Scrape off.  Easy Peasy.

Then my hubby added a filler to the decorative groove.  I have hated the decorative groove since I bought it.  Food has always gotten stuck in the groove.  Gross!!

Filled!  Wahoo!!

Next, the hubby added a cherry stain to the table.  I painted the legs  white.

I also painted the chairs white.

Next, was my favorite part.  I distressed the white part of the table and the chairs.

Last, I waxed the painted parts and hubby put poly on the table top.

Ta-da!!!  It is all finished!

Now, I need to figure out what I am going to put on the middle of the table.

Here are a couple more pictures of the table and chairs so you can see the distressed parts.  I don't think the pictures do it justice.

We also added new coverings to the seat cushions.  2 black and 2 in the damask print.

I love how it turned out.  It goes great with my black distressed buffet table.  Now I need to paint my curio cabinet. 
I hope you have enjoyed my makeover.

Update: I've added a center piece to the table.  My mom made the flower arrangement.  I love how it turned out.

  2. You make it look so easy! We have a dining set we bought when we first moved into our house. Now that we're building a new home, it will NOT blend in...at all! I'm considering whether it's worth the time & effort to fix it, or just sell & buy a new set. I love seeing how you transformed yours.

  6. Gorgeous! Love that cherry stain. Isn't it ironic how doing one project just makes you want/need to do another?
