She's removing paint and going natural.
It's fun to change things up for little cost.
Maybe it's because I'm looking for something
lighter and brighter -
You know, a sunny spot.
Oh, though I have such good memories
of my black dining table....
Remember This Table Setting
My table is about 10 years old
and has lots of wear.
There is such great liberty with paint.
It's so easy to change time after time.
After two or three applications of paint remover
I was down to using fine steel wool,
a little bit of paint stripper,
and some paint thinner.
When it was all clean I applied a light coat of stain.
Then I applied Polycrylic sealer with foam.
(You could use a roller)
I painted the legs and trim a creamy white semi-gloss.
I brushed on directly over the black paint,
then sanded the edges.
It gives you that nice rustic worn charm.
For now, I'm leaving the chairs black.
But I might paint them multi-colored
(soft beachy tones).
It's funny how paint has a lot to do with my mood!
But since I have dark floors and dark countertops
I was looking for some light relief in my dining room.
Here you can see the black table from above.
Now the lighter...
Really, I like them both.
I was just ready for a change.
And wait till I get my Spring Centerpiece
and table setting going....
Can't wait to show you.
So do you have a piece of furniture
that's up for a change, just because.
Fresh is Fun!
