My First #DIY Chalk Paint Victim

Nothing like online bargain hunting and DIY planning to take your mind off of the stress of moving.  Our new home has a great dining room but, we didn't have a dining room table.

So after hunting through antique stores and online sites I found a set that is solid and simple and perfect for the new house.  It just needs a little sprucing up.  You can't beat a solid wood table with 2 leaves, 6 chairs and a buffet for $150!

The plan is a quick chair recovering adventure and then I'm gonna get my chalk on with some paint for the table and buffet.  I love the natural wood patina of the chairs so I think just a fabric change will give them new life.


I love the idea of leaving the top it's wood colour and using a vibrant shade for the legs!

This white wash is gorgeous and since our new place has amazing dark hand scraped wood floors, the white would look fantastic against the floors.

Have you refinished furniture or made over your thrift store find? Comment with your blog posts, I'd love to check out what you created.  And stay tuned for posts on my dining room set makeover.  You can also find some of my favourite chalk paint inspirations on Pinterest.
