Fresh Look for Old Dining Room Set


Nancy and I were recently hired by a couple to paint all of their old furniture for their brand new home. They just purchased a chic, upscale home and their existing furniture either had to be replaced or updated, to become worthy of the stylish interior of their new home. They opted for the latter, so we began the transformation piece by piece. 


Their dining table looked rugged when we started work, but, luckily, they were just surface blemishes that could be patched and sanded smooth. I scrubbed the table thoroughly and then patched the top with wood filler, followed by a light sanding to even out the tabletop.


Next, we applied three coats of Graphite Chalk Paint®, which created a smooth, sleek finish.  Since the couple has three young children, we decided to use Annie Sloan's Lacquer as a top coat for extra durability. 


We painted all the dining chairs with two coats of French Linen Chalk Paint®.  Graphite paired with French Linen is quite a striking combination!





They also have a matching buffet that we painted in French Linen Chalk Paint®.  The buffet started out dark brown, like the table, with brass hardware.  


We painted the hardware with Chalk Paint® first and then applied a coat of pewter gilding wax over the paint. We noticed that the gilding wax sticks better to the Chalk Paint® than it does to plain metal.


To keep it uniform, we also used the laquer as the topcoat on the buffet.


This lovely piece of furniture fits like it was made for the space along the wall in their new dining room.

 
We painted the last piece in this trio for their entry hall.  We mixed Pure White with a little French Linen Chalk Paint® to creat a soft white with a hint of grey.

It is always admirable when people choose to reuse what they have rather than purchase new.  It worked out wonderfully well in this case!  Not only does the furniture look stunning in their new home, but they also saved a fortune by keeping their old, functional pieces.


Later in the week, I will be posting about their lovely chesterfield sofa that we painted with Chalk Paint® (see it in the background). Check back soon to see that amazing transformation!
