FARM FRESH Dining Table and Chairs Makeover



Good Morning my Beauties!
Let me tell you...this project was a doozie!
I always...always forget when I do a dining table and 4 chairs, how much more work it is than
doing other large pieces.

But hopefully you will agree, that it was WORTH it!

You see I have once again I had this sitting in my garage for about.......OH 6 months..
I just didn't know what I wanted to do with it.
So there it sat.....and sat.....and sat...

Till one day I could take no more...

I started stripping the disgusting fabric off the seats...I am not exaggerating when I say DISGUSTING either....
It only had about 1 billion stables...my lucky day..LOL!!

I honestly really had no idea what I wanted to do yet..I just knew I didn't want to do the brown top or stained top like the last few dining sets that I had done before.
I wanted a vintage feel so I started painting the top white and the
legs and chairs with CeCe Caldwells Traverse City Cherry..If you haven't noticed..
Its one of my faves!!

But then what...I remember a while back I had seen this GORGEOUS dining table on Pinterest
from  http://www.blackberryhouse.net/
It was a chore tracking down who originally did this but I just wanted to make sure
they got the credit for the original idea.

Now I didn't want to copy exactly so I made up a stencil with my Silhouette that
read "farm fresh" and put it at each end of the table
after I added my stripes.

while all that was drying I recovered the chairs with this gorgeous fabric I had been saving..I got the end of a bolt at Hobby Lobby...I was so excited that they had enough..

Once it was all dry I distressed the heck out of it to give it that vintage feel and then waxed and used the satin finish to protect the top..
And that my Beauties is all she wrote! I am now looking forward to painting some smaller pieces..
and moving this up to my booth...So I can sell it...:) 
I hope you enjoyed this long...long...project..well at least for me it was..
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Oh my gosh! Kaaaaarin! It's beautiful! The top total reminds me of vintage grain sacks. And that fabric is perfect! Here's another fave! Pinning!!!!

Lynn Fern said...

Worth it indeed! Turned out so beautiful!! Nice job.

Flower Child Designs said...

Looks great! Luv the stripes! I'm feeling your pain, I'm painting a whole dining room set now, a VERY large dining room set. Fortunately the client just wants a simple distressed white, not as fun as this, but with these large pieces I'm good with that - lol!

Peace,
Debbie

Shannon Fox said...

Yes. Most definitely worth it. The red is cheery, the "farm fresh" and the grain sack stripe are genius and the fabric is so CUTE! Paisley. Love it!!

I have to do mine, and I am dreading the chairs. I did one. It took 9 million years. So there is sits ;)

Kathryn J Cain said...

this make over, I feel your pain I did a table and chairs a while back, and I said never again...but when I get over this Flu and fever, I am looking for a table to team with some roadside chairs I saved...Love the red and the fabric is great,

I love your table! It looks great! I have a table I bought new from Walmart... their Better Homes and Gardens brand they carry. It's all black but I wonder what it would look like if I did the table top like yours but with black grain sack lines... hmmm... what do you think?

Polly @ BlackberryHouse.net said...

Just letting you know that the credit for the table you linked to is actually Blackberry House, not Vinewood Home Creations. Vinewood sells in my shop, and the woman who reposted a picture I posted on our facebook page misunderstood who painted the table. She saw Vinewood's name in the background of the picture on their signs, and she assumed the table was theirs as well. I'm the one who painted the table. Just wanted to let you know. We artists all want credit for our work, don't we?
lol

ps featured you tonight at Monday Funday! ;)

The Hen House Chicks said...

Like everyone else, I think you created a beautiful dining set. I also think painting chairs is more work than anything else! I absolutely love the fabric you used and tried to find it at Hobby Lobby. They had none like it. Do you happen to know the name or manufacturer? Perhaps I could find some online. Again, you do beautiful work.

Dana @ Cooking At Cafe D said...

I love what you did. And, it's great inspiration. I might do a French linen or a beat-up rustic ad. We'll see :)

Susan @ homeroad.net said...

I love the table! I just painted a bench with Cece Cauldwell's Traverse Red today, it was the first time I've used her paint. I'm curious how you like the Cauldwell paint. I am a little disappointed with the color, mine came out looking a little raspberry-ish so far.... I bought the dark wax too and that will be my next step. I'm curious how you like it.
Thanks
Susan
