Weekend Project: Refinished Table + Chairs

As you can see from my post yesterday, I bought a table and chairs from a resale shop and this weekend we made it our project. I can't believe we finished it all today! The only thing I have left to do is get some fabric to cover the chairs. Pattern ideas will come tomorrow!

Here is the process of our refinished table and chairs! Thanks TyTy for being such a great sport!!

I am seriously in love with this!! You're so awesome for coming up with this idea. As far as fabric goes, it might be best to just do either a damask or solid so that it's timeless. Even though I love ikat, I know that it won't be in style forever!

Girl, ya'll did such a great job! I can't believe you did this so quickly. I love how it turned out!

Charlotte, This turned out beautiful!!! I love it. We used drop cloth fabric on the chairs we did. It's cheap and durable and if it get's dirty, there was enough left over for a quick swap out. A solid doesn't distract from the beauty of the table. But,I'm sure what ever you choose will look great!
