Dining Room Makeover

2 Materials
Heidi from Lily Field Furniture is sharing a beautiful dining room upgrade today that anyone can tackle! She used Vanilla Frosting to spruce up these garage sale find chairs.
Hello and Happy Summer Country Chic Readers!

Today I want to show you how easy it is to update old, boring dining room chairs with paint. If you are like me you probably always see chairs at garage sales and goodwill. Except when you really need them of course! I searched for weeks for this particular client and finally came across these solid chairs at a garage sale.
My client wanted them in a creamy white and so we selected Vanilla Frosting, my go-to white. It’s a perfect balance between Simplicity and Cheesecake in my opinion! For prep work all I did was lightly clean the chairs and then I was ready to apply one coat of paint. Once they were dry I lightly distressed the edges and then since they will get a lot of wear I did 2 coats of Tough Coat to seal them well.
What do you think? I love how they add something to the dining room without overpowering. A simple, easy makeover that anyone can tackle!
