Our Dining Table

Out of desperation I found and finished a table.  We were desperate for a dining table where the 4 of us could sit down together for a meal. 

In our last home we had a round table that had seen better days. In our new place the space is not conducive to a round table.  So shopping I went.

I scored this cute little library table.  Here it is in progress.  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White was my color of choice.

Here she is painted, stripped and stained.  I like the dark walnut stain.  Not the stain and poly mix.  I have never had luck with that.

Instead of the poly mix, I coat the stained table top with two coats of wax.  Then buff it out.

Here she is in her spot.  She seats 6 comfortably.

It’s working for a dinner and homework hub.

I’ll be back to share my chairs next week.

Enjoy the weekend!

It came out beautifully! I don't like the poly / stain mix either! - Susan

In the world of today, decorating has taken on a whole new lease of life. Instead of home owners turning towards interior designers to help furnish their houses .
