Dining Table and Chairs found curb-side


My husband found this table and chairs for free curb-side and, of course, couldn't pass them up. They were in serious need of some updating but we were up for the challenge.

The chairs were spray painted a creamy white and the seats were recovered in some bargain graphic red and white fabric.

The base of the table was painted creamy white and then glazed to bring out the detailed woodwork.  We chose to sand and refinish the walnut table top with natural stain and many coats of polyurethane.  Buffing brought out the shine.

The glazing really brought out the details on the table base and chairs.

Next I made slip-covers for the chair seats.  The neutral shade made them more versatile and easy to clean.

    Wow I agree why would you just throw this out,? some people have more money than sense. Luckily they did as look what you have salvaged and made such a wonderful makeover, it's stunning and now has a new lease of life. Thank you for sharing.
