Dining Table and Chairs drybrushed with gold paint for weathered look.


When we purchased our home, which we have completely remodeled, the previous owner left the dining table and chairs. It was quite country looking so my husband and I sanded all surfaces and I than painted them black, along with reupholstering the chair pads. I was happy with how the table and chairs looked for several years but wanted to breathe a bit of "new" life into them, so I took some gold paint and dry brushed it on top of the black paint. We are very happy with end result and have received many compliments from guests.
