Remember my post showing my small dining area? Well things have changed and it's all white!..no pun intended...not really!
When I bought this dining table about 6 months ago at our local 'Everyday Living' store, I did mention to the sales woman that I probably would paint it as I could not find exactly what I wanted. The look she gave me indicated that she thought I was mad.
All the comments from my blogging friends inspired me to change this setting into something I would be happy to look at everyday. So thank you!
Anyway, this orphan table was drastically reduced in their closing down sale...even better. The chairs are not part of their 'Hamilton' range as is the table, they were actually from a local secondhand shop. Brilliant condition strong and sturdy - just right for men in the family... you know what I mean.
I could not bear to paint the top of the table as it is a really rich recycled pine with knots, and gnarly things. So I left it as it is.
I lightly sanded the table and the chairs, painted three coats of 'Ibis White" Bristol paint. Just have to do a bit of tweaking around the tile detail on the leg posts and then a coat of satin varnish to protect it and all done.
I am really pleased with how this turned out. I love it!
