When I was looking up color inspiration for our pressed back chairs I came across this table redo.
I loved the light distressed and glazed paint with the dark top. We ended up buying 2 table/chair sets off of Craigslist to have enough chairs for our dining table. One of the sets was a darker wood. I got to thinking that with the new addition to our family we would need a bigger table in our kitchen dining area and I could “try” to redo the darker one to fit the bill. I’m so glad I did!
I’m sorry I didn’t grab any before pictures. I sanded this thing down like crazy with a random orbital sander. I then painted the bottom with my enamel and primer in one. I distressed it with the same sander then dusted it off and glazed the blue. I stained the top and then applied a couple coats of a protector over the whole thing. It’s a little shinier than I usually like but I am so pleased with the result.
It’s a little hard to capture the right color but this is the same paint from the New China Cabinet! Love that finish!
Now if we can just get that bench built to go with it!
