Thrifty Makeover: Vintage Dining Table

If you have been reading my blog for a while, or if you are new here, you will know I LOVE to buy second hand furniture and revamp for a new look. Its the thrill of the hunt and of course easy on the pocket book that keeps me going. There have been many pieces that have come and gone, as I sell some pieces. Recently, I stumbled across a dining set that I wanted for the chairs. I have been looking for chairs for our kitchen that have the Scandinavian windsor chair look, and finally found a set. They recieved a paint treatment, but that is for another blog post. The table caught my daughter's eye and she wanted it for her apartment. It is a versatile piece that has leaves that fold down to tuck it against a wall, or add another leaf to make it an oval shape.

 The brown-orange lacquer needed to go. After stripping the laquer and giving it a good sanding, it received one coat of Dark Walnut by Varathane and 4 layers of Diamond Finish clear coat in matte by Varathane. The legs were painted in Coal Black by Fusion Mineral Paint. Let's just say I am MORE than pleased with the result!!
