Charming Farmhouse Style Table and Chairs Makeover

I am excited to share our Farmhouse style table and chairs makeover with you. We have been busy updating our front room and I am happy to finally have the table and chairs painted.
I've been itching to paint our dining room table and chairs to match the decor for a long time.

Thanks to Vintage Market and Design Paint I was able to do the makeover. Now our table is transformed into a charming Farmhouse Style table and chairs set that goes with our new home decor.

Our dark wood table and chairs are really nice wood but they either had to go or get painted because it was an eyesore in our new dining room.
To make cleaning and painting the table easier we took it apart.
It was much easier to paint the claw feet and base of the table like this instead of crouching on the floor under the table or turning the table upside down.
I used Vintage Market and Design Cotton White and Robin's Egg Blue. Plus I used their new product, Matte Finishing Cream, that leaves the chalk paint effect we all love and it protects and makes cleaning a breeze.

I have applied one coat of finishing cream so far and plan to do more coats (especially on the tabletop) because I am so impressed with the smooth and silky chalk effect the Matte Finishing Cream creates.
Two coats was all that was needed and we could put the table back together.
We have six chairs and they were slightly difficult to paint with all the dowels and grooves. I am lucky that my husband helped me with the table and chairs.

It took us 2-1/2 days to paint the dining set. This is one makeover that takes our breath away every day with how beautiful it turned out.

I love our morning light that streams into this room on sunny days.

I got a lot of joy painting our table and chairs. Thanks to the high-quality Vintage Market Paints I now have a wonderful new dining room set.

    I popped over to your blog to read he details of this project as you stated I would find there but all I saw was pretty much the same as here. I saw no details about how you pulled it off and the techniques it took. Please redirect me to the right place. Thank you!

    Did you prep the table first and sand it or just paint?
