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

My new, but old table. Here are a few more pictures of it.
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.
