Another paint project finished, the dining room chairs have a solid paint color in “Almond”. They had the distressed look before (you can see that here). I’m over the chippy, rugged paint look and am enjoying the clean feel the solid paint color gives.
All that’s left to do is paint the yellow cabinet in a dark walnut color. I’m just waiting for someone to be home long enough to help me drag it outside. I hate to unload stuff from it and have everything cluttering up the dining room table for days before I paint. I like to unload it, paint it, and get it back in the house with things put away. It stresses me out seeing things out of place for long.
I’m assuming the spray paint will hold up well on the chairs because the finish under it was chalk paint and we also never use the dining room, we eat our meals at the kitchen island. If I could I would turn the dining room into something else but nothing seems right in that spot so it will remain an unused dining room.
I get asked often where the dining table and chairs are from so here’s the answer: A local school that had an auction, It was once a library table. I had a soccer game to coach that day so hubby stayed at the auction for me just to place a bid.
I was so excited when he came home with it, it’s made from nice sturdy oak and weighs a ton, you know back in the day when furniture was made to last? He picked up the table and 8 chairs for $200, I did have to scrape a little gum from the underside but what a bargain and it’s the only piece of furniture we own that I’ve never got tired of.
