Revamping a pretty dressing table or vanity can transform a small area into a dressing space. A smaller table fits nicely in the space, but still has ample room for the morning routine. Having an electrical outlet nearby is a must for curling irons, blow dryer, and other gadgets. The elegant mirrored table adds glamour to the room. How to transform previous post….4 steps., hope you will join me on Facebook, thanks for stopping by and have a great one, Suzanne
I own a fun and approachable furniture warehouse where I buy new and vintage furniture from diverse sources including beautiful high end home estate sales. I specialize in refinishing the pieces to the customer’s desired request. Once refinished, they become perfect for the intended space. I am pleased to share the painting procedure I used on the dining table and chairs for my dear customer Christine.
Using vintage furniture can add so much history and meaning.
Please don’t feel like the original finish can’t be changed! We all have pieces that we purchased or inherited that no longer work with our room’s new decor, consider adding on a fresh coat of paint to give these furnishings the desired look and change the overall mood of the room.
How I created this look.
We started with an antique table from an estate sale and added four new dining chairs to set the tone. Chairs and table were painted white with a chalk paint recipe, (please see below), then distressed ….lot’s of sanding in order to get that aged look. It turned out the way Christine imagined it!…
THE CHAIRS, those chairs are so comfortable and plush with their chenille fabric. I am sure my customer will be injoying long and wonderful sit down dinner parties. Our dynamic team started by taking the seats off for easier access to the frames. We could not take the back of the chairs off so they were meticulously taped allover. Then we began to paint them with the homemade chalk paint recipe.
THE TABLE, the next step was to tackle. I almost always turn the piece upside down. This procedure is much easier on my back and produces a clean finish to the bottom of the piece. The lines and scale of the chairs and table were a perfect match!
Have a great one! Suzanne xxoo
