We picked up our dining room table yesturday and i'm pretty darn excited about it. Too bad it has to stay in the box for another 2 months or so before we're ready to actually put it in the house.
Here it is (didn't get the chairs to go with it)Throughout the summer I bought 8 chairs. 4 from kijiji and 4 from a thrift store in Sundre (which was an awesome little thrift store by the way). All summer long I told myself I would sand and paint the chairs. The sanding happened on about 1/2 of them but the painting did not. Finally made it to Walmart on Friday to buy some test paint to see if I liked to colour.
Here's the butt of the chair... after the sanding. I started out using an electric sander and then realized all I really needed to do was rough the finish up and not actually remove it all:)
PRIMER: took an entire can for 1 chair so turns out it will cost about 10.00 per chair to paint which i am okay with because I paid about 100.00 for all 8 chairs. Love the fact that the chairs are all solid wood and still have a good long life ahead of them
I actually liked the look of the chair with only the primer... looked very vintage but it was a bit too white for me
SPRAY PAINT: Ivory colour, Satin finish.
Still might do a few finishing touches but overall I'm pretty happy with the results! Yah for whiteness!!
