My $40 Yard Sale Dining Room Table & Chairs


I found this dining room table and chairs at a yard sale - it was pretty disgusting when I found it - but a deal at $40. With a little elbow grease and chalk paint, here's how it looks now!
Table with 4 leaves and 4 chairs - $40!

      @Stephanie Decoud I don't remember the brand, but it was definitely a water based poly and NOT oil based. Oil based poly yellows over time. And, it was a satin finish - not glossy. I hope this helps!
