I painted this dining table and chairs for our May sale at The Plucky Peacock. I think it was my favorite to date! I L~O~V~E my job and am so very thankful for it. However, there is one downside, the front rooms of my house, which consist of a formal living and dining room, are always full of furniture waiting to be put together or moved to to the shop. Otherwise, this set would be living with me as we speak :).
The fabric for the chairs pretty much led all of my color choices. The chairs were painted with Spring Stream by Behr. The table is mahogany and has 8 legs. I painted the base in General Finishes Antique White and refinished the top with Kona stain by Rustoleum. The entire set was sealed with several coats of poly for protection and durability.
The matching buffet had gorgeous burled wood on the drawer fronts that I couldn't bear to paint over. So I went with a two tone look. The body is General Finishes antique White. The drawers and doors were refinished with Rustoleum Kona stain. Unfortunately my pics do not do the beautiful wood grain justice!
There was originally a matching china cabinet as well. I had the entire dining room suite, which is rare for me. However, I tire quickly of matching sets and by the time I got to the china cabinet I was ready for a change. I painted the china Earthnut (Behr) and Lagoon (SW). Apparently my customers are not big fans of matching sets either because a different person purchased each piece. Even the table and chairs were separate. How about you, do you prefer a matching set or would you rather mix it up?
