Outdated 1980's Dining Set Gets Farmhouse Makeover

The best things in life are FREE, right? Thank you to the lady on Craigslist who had tried to sell this set, but couldn't stand having them in her garage any longer. SCORE!! This dining set was in excellent structural condition, but boy, did that orange stain have to GO! Come see how I used my HomeRight paint sprayer to create this refreshing farmhouse dining set.
Do you think the lady I got this for free from would recognizer this set?
Made of solid wood and perfectly functional, but that orangey stain had to go!
Classic lines and oodles of potential are what caught my eye about this set.
What better time and back saver than the HomeRight Finish Max paint sprayer...I love it!
So clean and refreshing - just perfect for your farmhouse decor.

    Oh, that's great! I hope mine is the same. I can't remember the brand of mine (having a senior moment!) but I've had it for a few years, but never used it because I thought (think) I might need a compressor. Maybe if I read the instructions I would know for sure?? lol Thanks for the reply!

    Exactly like my set! Am quite happy with it as have "80-s" oak cabs which I am also happy with. My only problem? Was spraying a brass fixture with Clear Coat and it seeped right through multi layers of newspaper and adhered them to the top. Real mess. So far I've just covered it with a tablecloth. Will have to tackle a paint job for the top, You did a really nice job.
