Kitchen Table & Chairs
 
6 Attachment(s)
This is a project that I did last year but never got around to posting.

These were received from Jumbletowner, PlayGirlB29, with many thanks. They were pine and chairs were covered in very old fashioned material.

I think you'll agree the end result is a bit more modern.

Wow, what a great restoration job. These look like new. You must be very patient to get such a good paint finish. Well done, Eibhlin.

Thats a fantastic result. I have a similar table and chairs that I was going to get rid of after seeing this project I'm planning on painting it instead. What paint did you use did you need to sand furniture or is there a primer that works?
Thanks
Emma

Hi Emma,

We sanded the top of the table to add a bit of character to it and then put on about 3 coats of regular wood paint. We didn't sand the chairs, just gave them a quick wipe and painted straight onto them. Staplegun a bit of nice material onto the chairs and voila!

Good luck!

hiya,
you did such a great job!! they look brand new and very expensive!! amazing how paint can really brighten up faded old furniture! tudlytops gave me an old side board that i love since giving it a coat of paint. it certainly beats forking out in an expensive shop.

Sorry for the delay in responding but had a baby in Sept which has pretty much taken over my life!! :-)

The colour on the walls is 'Casanova', soft sheen and it's Woodies own brand.

Sorry for the delay in responding. We used Acrylic Satinwood paint on the table & chairs and borrowed the staple gun from my Aunt, which I believe is a regular one. You just need to put your back into it when stapling, to get the staple to go in as far as possible. I got my husband to do the stapling whilst I held the material in place... he's alot stronger than me, so worked better this way. :-)

Good luck!

Table and Chairs
 
Hi, congratulations on your new baby, I have a query re the updating job you did on the table and chairs. I have an identical set of table and chairs and intend doing something to modernise them along with the rest of the room and I wondering how the paint job has stood up after a few months. I have painted a small table and locker using ordinary wall and ceiling paint but it wouldn't take much wear for them to start looking tatty (they are in the spare room so not a problem), the table and chairs will need to withstand normal wear so I'd appreciate your comments and same from anyone else.

DaveMag 11-04-2011 11:11 AM

Wow! It looks brand new! Very solid and professional work. It fits the room perfectly!

eilo 07-01-2012 05:35 AM
