rustic table with modern chairs.

i painted a very simple table the other day, but i wanted to show you guys, because i love the way my clients are pairing it with these modern chairs. they bought this heavy pedestal table in black...but 3 days after they bought it, felt like they'd made a mistake, and decided it would be best in a lightly distressed, creamy white. their taste is fresh and treaditional, with a modern finish. i really loved it. (check out their beautiful grey kitchen cabinets...i want)

(i'd already put a deglosser on top, hence the wet-ness)

and, after

lighter, brighter, and less of a "dark hole" in the kitchen :) i couldn't take the cardboard out from underneath yet, so you guys have to deal with it in my photos! sorry.

  5. Great job! I'm actually looking for a round table like that to paint white as well!! Did you just degloss the table or did you have to sand it all down before painting???

  6. jacqueline- i am not sure of the brand, but i got it at ace hardware. it's good stuff!

    momma j lee - i degloss, then i lightly sand with a sander that is not very gritty. i am careful with things that are very shiny like this, because you dont want to create scratches that will show through your final paint.

  8. Love the juxtaposition of the rustic and modern. Thanks for the deglossing tips. I want to paint our kitchen table someday and this info will definitely come in handy!

  11. Modern furniture does have good quality as we see above pictures. It makes you place look elegant. It does not made by its ordinary purposes but it is created also to add beauty in a place.
