Updating a wooden dining set dating in leicester uk
Thanks to a pin from Lonny Magazine and my girlfriend who liked the pedestal table the best- The chair hunt did not end until May, I had been looking for two months and my daughter's 1st birthday was coming up in June- my goal for the dining set to be complete.
My next step is to find lighting options, which I am checking out at Hinkley Lighting!
So, I finally found a set of 6 chairs for (Craigslist again) and figured that at a piece I would just paint them for her party and get rid of them when I found something better. Clean the surfaces and decide your method of stripping.
I chose to chemically strip, because of all the little crooks and nannies I did not want to use a handheld sander.
Besides using Chalk Paint®, I’m going to show you how to either refresh a piece of stained furniture or change the color completely. It did stay like this for a few months until I decided whether I would paint or refinish it. I wanted it a darker color of stain but didn’t want to go through that whole process. I blended these two shades until I came up with the color I wanted. I don’t think I ever just use anything as it comes.Now that my kitchen floor has been refinished and looks all shiny and new, I got the energy to get to spray painting the wood chairs that go around the kitchen table painted. Remember the post I wrote back in the summer, where I told you that one morning I came down to my kitchen that was such a mess since I was painting the cabinets? I was hemming and hawing about what color to paint them, then inspiration hit me over the summer in the most unusual way.And then one day, I came across this table at Restoration Hardware. Then, the next day, I added three thin coats of polycrylic to keep it all pretty.We’re not all that rough on this table since we only use it on occasion, but if you ever makeover a table that takes a lot of frequent wear and tear, polyurethane might be your better bet.
