Hi Guys! It’s Kristin D. here from Navy Bean Lane.
Lately I have been getting quite a few requests to do pieces similar to this one … with a creamy white base and a stained top. I love the look, feel like it’s pretty classic and thought I would share one of my first kitchen table redo’s with you!
The before shot shows you that even though the table was dated and worn, it had good bones, which in my book is a must when starting any redo.
It never ceases to amaze me at what a coat of paint and a
My customer only wanted minimal distressing/antiquing … but just think how amazing all of those little details would look with a deep brown glaze settled into all those nooks and crannies!
And can I just say that I am in love with the stained seats on the chairs?? Swoon!
The process went a little something like this:
Clean and sand surfaces
Take Chairs apart (the hubby did this part and it was no easy task!)
Prime and Paint (Cottage White by Behr but color matched by Valspar)
Stain table top and chair seats (Kona by Rustoleum)
A little light distressing
Polyurethane in semi gloss by Varathane
And here’s one more before and after just for fun!
I hope you enjoyed a look at one of my first “big” projects and would love for you to come on over to my blog and check out a few more!
