A Rustic Table

I had the great opportunity of painting a dining set this week. My client showed me this lovely picture from Pinterest.

I was so excited to paint this for her. I just loved the rustic beauty of this simple table. I adore the simple brown top and the contrast of the black against the white table.

Hmmm... kind of reminds me of my kitchen table but opposite, white chairs and black legs. No wonder I love it:)

Here's a before picture of the dining set. The chairs were a blue and the table was a nice natural wood.

Here's my version of this table makeover. A little more distressing.

I also painted some barstools for her.

The Before


Of course this was done with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a lot of LOVE.

    You did a wonderful job!!!!
    I have TWO dining sets to refinish have to do one next week.
    You made it look easy... was it too hard?
    I also loved the bar stools!!!

    1. I'm not going to lie, I felt like I ran a marathon to get the dining set done in a week. Chairs are rough.
