When I first separated from my ex-husband 9 years ago I didn't have a dining room table so my mom let me borrow the table below. I've been using it all this time. I almost always had a white table cloth on it because the wood top on it just didn't go with my decor. I don't know why I never thought to paint the top of it before but for some reason it just never entered my mind until after I painted my dining room chairs. My mom doesn't want the table back after all these years so she said she didn't mind if I painted it.So after sanding, priming, painting and distressing it, I'm really happy with how it looks now. Someday I want to find a more formal dining room table to paint white but for now this is so much better.
I want to make some little chair seat covers for these chairs so I can change the look depending on my mood. I have too many ideas and not enough time! (or money).
