Retro Dinette Set
Here's how I made over a retro dinette set. I inherited this cute dinette set and in my mind I had a vision...
I used furniture stripper and palm sander on table top. The chairs didn't need furniture stripper I only used floor stripper to remove the years worth of furniture polish. The chairs needed some repairs on the backs and wood filler.
I Sanded and repaired the backs of the chairs, then stained with black cherry stain. I added three coats of varnish for durability. I reapholstered the seats with some cute retro fabric I found at the local thrift store
I stripped and sanded the table top and applied the gorgeous black cherry stain and several coats of semigloss varnish.
I sanded lightly between varnish coats, and did everything to the table extension board ...
More sanding, and more varnish...
This is the stain..
Several coats of varnish...
And this this is the finished Dinette Set, Pretty cue if I do say so myself!!
This is how the table looks without the extension...
Project complete! I love the new and improved dinette set :)
