Oh yeah…I did it. I painted our dining room set.
Thanks to all of you who voted on the blog to choose the paint color. While there were other great suggestions, I ended up going with the majority and choosing black. I agree that it probably blends better with our existing room (rug, sconces, curtains). I love white, but it’s probably a little too casual for the room as it is. And, I don’t wanna change the room… yet. =) So… thanks again to all of you. You are like my personal decision making machine.
And the dining table and chairs look FABULOUS!
It went from this…
(Do you notice those scratches all over the chairs? Lovely…)…
But, let me tell you – those chairs were a pain in my patootie. Every one of those spindles was my worst nightmare. Thankfully, my gram came over on Friday and Saturday to help. Then, I put the last coat on today. I’m going to let it cure for a day and then put poly on the top to protect it.
While I was picking up black paint, I saw some green that caught my attention. So, I painted the end table while I was at it.
I’m going to paint it black to match the table and take off the wooden hardware and change it out for something brushed nickel.
