We've lived in our house for 11 years. The first piece of furniture we bought was our dining room table.
Our house has an open concept feel and the dining room is very wide. We went with a table that was square and have been super happy with it. Its been the site of many happy occasions and its where I get my craft on.
It started to look a to sad. And you know my concept by now. Make it over.
Before. Super hard chair that hurt the buns after a while.
After. I added foam, batting, and laminated cotton to make these super comfy.
Before. You can see the wear and its time for a change.
After. Cece Caldwell's Chalk Paint and Aged Wax.
The difference is amazing. Now I have to wait ten days for it to cure. Oh, table you are so lovely.
This was one of the easiest projects I've done in a while and the results are superb. I've never used chalk paint before and I love how easy it was to work with.
For years I've had ideas in my head of things I wanted to do and I keep putting them off. Everyone should love the house they live in and if you need to make changes that are feasible then do it. Every time I finish one of my projects I love my house just a little bit more.
