Painting Table & Chairs

Hi All,

Hope you had a good weekend.  It was cold and dreary here – which made me less productive than usual.

I do have a quick before and after to share.  Actually, a before and almost after.

You may recall our cottage nightmare last month.  Within 2 days, we painted the kitchen cabinets, island, laid flooring in two bedrooms and cleaned!

Since painting the wood in the cottage will protect from mold and mildew, I also painted the dining table and chairs (yep, during those 2 days).

We bought this round table and 4 chairs from friends nearly 6 years ago.  We loved the knotty wood and style for the cottage.

The 4 chairs and the table base were painted with my paint recipe.  You can find it here.

The chairs are complete.  The table base is complete.  The tabletop will be stained or painted on our next trip.  Then everything will be sealed.

Since the cottage has a very shabby chic feel, if paint wears from the chairs due to heavy use, it will look even better!

Here are a few shots of the cottage furniture I painted last summer.

The table and chairs will fit right in!

Have a great start to your week!
