Default Kitchen Table & Chairs

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!
