Firewood is what my hubby called this table and chairs as he was loading it into the back of his truck. I called it pure potential. I just knew she could be beautiful, and for thirty dollars, I didn't care to much if for some reason she didn't turn out. Craigslist I love you!
I forgot to take before pictures, so here are the pictures the guy texted me.
She needed a major face lift and I was up for the challenge.
Remember the chandelier I took from my neighbors curb? I gave her a face lift too. Are you ready for my dining room reveal? Keep in mind it cost me a total of 40 dollars plus paint. Thirty for the table and chairs, and 10 for the roll of upholstery fabric I got at the consignment store down the street. Drum roll..............
Not bad huh?
The weather has been amazing this week, so I actually got to paint outside without melting away.
I think I love her!
Another awesome thing about this table is that it helped me get to know my neighbors! They are just wonderful! We talked and talked, while I painted, and our kids played together! Hi Kristen!:)
I actually had to paint her twice. The first time I used glaze, and didn't like how it looked, so we repainted, and just used a sander to rough her up a bit.
