Hello Everyone…hope you are having an extra special weekend so far!
Remember all our great finds last week? Well, I’ve been really, really busy and my body feels it! I’m taking the weekend off from painting by orders of my husband. I’ve been recruiting his help more and more lately. I’ve been telling him, he should just join me full-time in this little business venture of mine. We’ll see ~ I think I’m wearing him down!
So, the very first thing I tackled was the dining room table. The table has a label that states it was made in Taiwan but the chairs are Drexel Heritage. They go beautifully together. I wanted the set to be light and bright without being solid white so I chose to paint a base coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint Vintage White and then brushed on a layer of Kansas Wheat. I distressed the chairs and the base of the table but left the table top solid Kansas Wheat. I used three coats of clear wax on the top and then used a mixture of clear and dark wax on the rest. I also reupholstered all six chairs with fabric I purchased at Joanns. I had a 50% off coupon so I bought the entire bolt…a saving of $76.00. I use this fabric all the time so why not?
Our Neighborhood Bible Study Group was meeting in our home again on Thursday night so I had to get the table done and delivered to my space in Furniture Affair or there wouldn’t have been room for everyone. I painted it all inside weaving between these pieces as well as our own furniture. (Our garage has filled up again!) Ya just do what ya got to do, right?
I just LOVE this style of chair. It’s so pretty plus sturdy and comfortable!!!
