This was an adorable project!!! I absolutely fell in love with it when it was done!!! It ended up in a woman's apartment where she wanted something stylish but that did not take up a ton if space.

Here is the before. Not bad but it needed some Spencer tlc and my paint touch!!! As always I started by wiping down the piece with a water and vinegar solution to get the ickys off.

So as you can see there were no seats on the chair which for a chair that could be an issue hahaha. We are all about repurposing so Spencer cut pieces of pallet wood and made a seat!!!
The seats were then stained using grey Minwax stain and a slight dry brush white paint treatment.
I then did the same stain, white paint layer for the top to achieve the look as pictured above.

The seats once attached were then stained with the grey Minwax stain and sealed with polycrylic.

For the top I used my slappy slap dry brush method where I paint the white first (bullseye this time) and then I use my chippy brushes to lightly apply the stain. The top was also sealed with polycrylic.

    This is beautiful. I'm very new to DIY. What is "DRY PAINTING"?

    The first picture of the table reveals a square table; the finished pic shows us a

    round table. What's up with that?

      The sides drop down to make it rectangular. You can see the sides down in the first pic.
