Dining Table and Chairs

After my first dining room table redo I decided I was never painting a table again!  You know what they say about never say all started when I saw this hutch.  I knew the lady was also selling the table and chairs, but all I really wanted was the hutch.  Isn't it cute!!  Anyway, once we got there and saw the table...and she gave me a ridiculously low price, I knew I was going to be painting another table.  Somehow Mom and I managed to fit all this furniture into the back of the suburban.

My first table I had wanted to stain the top, but it was too damaged.  This one was in very good condition, so I sanded it and stained it Kona...a very dark brown.  I love the contrast with the white base and legs.  Check out all the curves!

A little distressing on the legs...

This table went to a super nice couple that also want the hutch.  And I may try my hand at building some bench seating for them as well.  I'll keep you posted.

I sold the chairs separately to another lady.  She started out wanting me to paint her table, but I convinced her she really could do it herself.  =)  I sprayed one of the chairs Aqua and then distressed it.  The other chair I left wood and she plans to paint it black.  Her dining set plan is black table and chairs with this one pop of aqua color.

I'll be working on the hutch pretty soon...stay tuned!
