While I took the week off from blogging, Jerry’s been busy on his building streak. He built a dining room table for us! I don’t know about you, but I’m impressed.
We couldn’t find any of the chunky table legs that we like, so the current table legs are temporary. My project this week is the fun and much easier part of this project; once again, I get to finish it up. I think I’ve decided to go classic white distressed farmhouse style paint job.
The dining room chairs, I plan to do a mix up of thrift store finds. So far we scored one good chair at the Goodwill for $5. I love a great bargain. A nice solid wood chair, that needs cleaning and a couple coats of paint. The mix of chairs I will paint all the same color; I’m thinking Jadite Green, or a Turquoise / Aqua Blue color.
I cannot wait to break out the vintage linens, china, and glassware to set the table.
The week I’ll do the basic steps for painting furniture:
- Sand really good
- Paint a couple coats
- Maybe age / distress….not sure if I want to do this or not
- Finish it up with a Top Coat – I have to do some more reading, but I believe Polycrylic is a good top coat for dining room tables; it’s heat resistant. More research needed.
