Scott was lucky enough to be at the right place, at the right time and score these tables and chairs!
Here is what the chairs and table looked like when Scott brought them home:
|You can just barely see the table in this picture. The top is beautiful wood but the legs were a different wood that had been painted to match the stain on the top. the chairs were also painted brown to appear to match.|
The seat cushions on the chairs had a horrid printed fabric which was covering up a horrid gold fabric...both stinky and gross.
I recovered the chair cushions with this printed fabric:
While Scott was sanding and refinishing the tabletop, I started spraying the chairs with spray paint. Here is what they looked like with a couple coats of spray paint:
Then I glazed the chairs and table legs to "age" them and bring out the details.
Here is a shot of the table before glazing:
And here's the table after glazing:
While I was sewing slipcovers Scott was applying his multiple coats of Polyurethane to make the tabletop amazingly shiny. Then he gave it a good buffing to take it over the top...
And here is the finished product!!!
