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!

Good luck with your project!

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.

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.

Well done, fab job, I am thinking of doing the same, did you have to sand table first?

We sanded the top of it, just to give it that old / used / country kitchen look ... Adds a bit of character to it! :-)

recycling old table
 
Hi, I was looking at your before and after pictures, what a great job. I have a table like that which gets a lot of white stains that I can't get rid of. was it easy to do, did you have to sand it all down, and what type of paint did you use. Thanks. Joan

Beautiful work, well done. A real credit to you :-)

Now that was a HUGE success. They're absolutely stunning. I can't wait to start my first upcycling project, feeling inspired now.
