Farmhouse Inspired-Table & Chairs Re-do

How lucky am I?
My neighbors were going to donate their
dining room table and chair set. BUT, when
they saw a Facebook post of mine...they
donated it to me!
Oh thank you! Thank you!
Thank you, good neighbors!

I absolutely love how the table turned out. I originally wanted to stain just the top.
I am SOOOO glad I went ahead and stained it all!

First, I sanded the table. Once sanded, I cleaned it and added three coats of stain.
I sanded all the chairs as well. I had to do a little fixing up but not much at all. ;)
I used Heirloom White spray paint on the chairs.
I added three coats of polycrylic to the table top.
*I hand sanded with medium grit sandpaper*

Whattya think??

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

  10. This is beautiful! I have a very similar style child's table and chair set that I wanted to re-hab for for my son's new room and I was thinking paint, but you've inspired me to try this. What tint/color stain did you use? I'm a newbie to blogging so I'll be following for sure!
