The before may
make you vomit gross you out, but I saw the potential!
I got these chairs from a relative, that has had them in storage for about a decade. They were cleaning it out and decided they would never refinish this dining set, so they were off to the D.I. Then they remembered that I had been searching for a new set, and asked me if I wanted them...
I hesitated a bit once I saw them, but I thought I could see what I could do. The worst that could happen was I painted them the wrong color and had to redo it right, plus, if I couldn't get them how I wanted I could just give them to the D.I. and keep up my searching! They were practically free!
They did inform me that the beauty mark of a stain right there is actually mahogany stain that had spilt on it years ago! That made me feel a bit better!
I felt like I needed something to add to the chairs because
I have a problem they seemed dull to me, so I reverted back to my ever so handy wood scrolls (maybe I just have an addiction to wood scrolls?)
Plopped one of those on the back of each chair and glazed it to add a little pop!
I need to finish my glazing around it, but I ran out, one of the many problems I faced while redo this dining set!
Anyway, I am quite pleased with the end result. I am still trying to find 4 coordinating fabrics to go on all 4 chairs ( I have a bench on one side of my table). Either that or I want one fabric that has teals, browns, greens, oranges, yellows, and purples or reds. If you know of any fabric that matches that...LET ME KNOW! I will love you forever!
The "TWO tables into ONE" transformation will hopefully be tomorrow, if I finish it today! If not...I will be ticked, sometimes my ideas in my head are almost impossible and it drives
ME the HUBBY crazy!
Maybe I will just give a partial reveal tomorrow if I still am not finished. (In my head it's going to be beautiful, maybe it won't work out like that in real life though?)
Have Happy Weekend People!!
