Isn't it funny how we sometimes find something so perfect when we aren't even looking for it? Ok perhaps that's a little overdramatic for furniture but one morning I was checking out some of my local Facebook groups, one that people sell furniture in and I found this awesome table and 6 chairs for....drumroll please...$100!
Here is the before photo in the previous owners home:
I love the lines of the table and the ladder back chairs. If I had room for the buffet and hutch I would have gotten that too but I didn't.
She was also selling a cute pine console table for $30 that I also bought (that makeover later) and I ended up with everything for $120! Wahoo!
The set sat in my garage waiting for it's makeover and for me to sell my current one (which I ended up selling for $300!)
Finally last week I decided it was time to get this project underway since we were hosting Easter dinner!
In the past I have made my own chalk paint but this time I decided to use the real stuff-Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, in graphite. (at another time I'll go into detail about which one I prefer).
This is my inspiration photo for our dining room:
I love the wood table with the black chairs! Plus the lanterns and the big windows are a huge bonus.
One more time before it's makeover!
