Updating old dining room chairs dating thailand com
Once it was completely stripped and sanded a bit, all the wood needed was about 10 coats of polyurethane for protection.
No staining required, thank goodness...is a process for me that ranks up there with stripping wood!
I love the contrast of the wood tabletop with the painted and distressed legs.
An entirely stained table and chairs would have been way too much wood for this tiny space.
Because of the painted finish, you notice the beautiful turned legs even more now.
It was pure luck that beautiful wood was hiding out under all the grime and stain on the tabletop.
The table top is old and split in a few places, but in my opinion that just adds amazing character. After a couple coats of a creamy white chalk paint and some distressing, the base and chairs were protected with Miss Mustard Seed's clear furniture wax applied with a rag.
I love this product, but it is especially great for white painted wood because it doesn't leave a yellow tint like some waxes or polyurethane. The chairs still need to be reupholstered in padding and some gray floral fabric my mom picked up at Hobby Lobby. There is another leaf to the table that needs to be stripped and have the coats of polyurethane applied.
After being in our basement for years with a semi-stripped tabletop, I made the decision to forget stripping it all and paint the base and chairs instead with my DIY chalk paint.
Either way, the dining table can turn into a symbol of joyful times spent together.
Unfortunately, I was born a few years too late and missed out on holiday dinners with the entire family in attendance.
