I thought I would be a good girl and not buy a new dining set. The table is in great shape, but the chairs were dated. I bought new chairs on Overstock (still in boxes) I'll post them when they are put together -2 weeks tops! yeah right.
So here are pictures of the remake on the table. I am pretty happy with the results but not ecstatic.
|Original table. I think everyone in the world has had a version of this claw foot table with pressed back chairs at one time or another.|
|First coat of Milk Paint|
|2nd coat - isn't it pretty? Such a smooth finish.|
|Well, this is the table with the glaze on it. This picture really doesn't show just how ugly it came out. I wish I had never heard of glaze. Anyway, it was just too brown looking.|
