Table Makeover

A few weeks ago, I worked on this dining set for a client, and thought I'd show you my results. It's such a dramatic difference, without a whole lot of paint. It's a great example of working with what you've got. 

Here is a "before" shot of the table:

It was all very dark, heavy wood. I painted just the bottom of the table, and all of the chairs except for the seats... look at what a difference it made:

The lighter paint gives a much different feel... less serious... more comfortable...

I did pretty heavy distressing... Distressing is a great option for families with children!

  4. That's a really pretty face lift.

    Here painting the legs of the table and chair white made sense as their lines are shapely and strong. The details of the carvings come through so much more and moreover, the white accentuates the beauty of the natural wood. Brava!
