Updating old dining room chairs

If you would like to feature my work, you may use ONE (1) NON-COLLAGED image and must link back to my original blog post.

I applied it probably a lot thicker than I should have and so it went on very opaque. (At first I was very disappointed by that since I worked really hard to take it back down to the beautiful bare wood, but after two years, it does still look really pretty.) This is a stain and poly in one, so there is no need for a sealer. I don’t still pretty, it’s just that I was so excited to start my new plan, but chose to play it safe. For now this table still allows our family to gather together for dinner.

When selecting a dining room rug, keep this tip in mind: The rug should extend 18 to 24 inches beyond the table on all sides to allow each chair's four legs to remain on the rug when the chair is pulled away from the table. Although a matching dining room set can be beautiful, it can also be boring; instead give your space a collected-over-time look with mismatched furniture.

Tip: Select your table first because it's much easier to find chairs that work with the table's height than the other way around.

From sewing to painting, reinventing to ripping down and rebuilding, with a little bit of craftiness sprinkled in between, I love a project!
