Dining Room Table Makeover

I shared with you my new to me table that I bought back in late summer here


I had great hopes of getting right on that makeover and sharing wonderful pictures a week after I posted the table find...said no one ever!

I love hosting the holidays at my home for one big reason.. Every project that you put off all year long WILL get done if everyone is invited to come to your home for the holidays. Like many years past, we started working on a few projects that were put off till now. One being my dining room table! I painted the chairs and lower half with Annie Sloan chalk paint in graphite.

I then went over that with a dark wax to give it that dark black color. I had a little help from my hubby on this project.

 He sanded the top of the table and stained it Carrington.

He then applied several coats of polyurethane to protect the color.

 I am so happy with the final outcome!

I am one extremely thankful lady! Who says hosting a dinner is so bad?

  4. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
    clear your thoughts before writing. I've had a hard time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy
    writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!

  8. Refinishing the dining table seems to have given it a more sophisticated look. Thanks for sharing.
