Farm Fresh Turning a old beat up dining set into a Fresh Vintage Beauty. I wanted to turn this table into something Vintage and Fresh...so with a little paint and a lot of elbow grease I made it happen

Love what you did with this table and chairs. I have the exact table and chairs. I had painted
the chairs white and the table legs white and it turned out great but I think I might do this!!!
We didn't have a lot of money to redo the kitchen but a lot can be done with not a lot of money invested in it. The first thing we did was take down the hanging cabinets. It opened the
whole room up. Then I painted them black and painted the hardware silver. I painted the speckled tile and white with ceramic tile paint. Sprayed the range hood black. Painted that brown light fixture black and put new shades on. We decided to leave the one wall with open cabinets to break up all the door fronts. We ended up really liking the ease of our dishes so easy to grab and put away.
In the planning & designing of my dining room, I realized the budget was tight so when I could I reused existing furniture I did. My existing bench was so funtional for the kids & it fit
my table perfectly, the only problem it was DARK brown. It needed paint, so on a whim one day I went for it and painted a french grain sack stripe. I used the DIY chalkpaint recipe for the base color(cream) and Anne Sloans French Linen Chalk Paint for the stripe.
