Some of you asked to see pictures of my kitchen table and chairs when I showed you the bench that I rehabbed for the kitchen. So here you go...
In it's younger days, it was the typical yellow pine, butcher block kitchen table. Very sturdy and practical but not my style anymore. I don't have a before picture but it was just like this one. This was all done BB (Before Blogging) when I didn't occur to me to document everything I do in photos.
I painted the table and chairs nearly six years ago...before I developed a deep and abiding love for spray paint. (Hard to believe, I know) I actually painted this with a gallon of satin black paint and a brush. Shocking, no? Then I added a few coats of satin polyurethane for durability. It took FOREVER to paint all of those legs and spindles with a brush. FOREVER!
If I had it to do again, I would probably use an oil-based paint in my new power sprayer. Oil-based paint gives you a tougher finish for things that get heavy use like the top of kitchen table.
I've been toying with the idea of changing it up again. Maybe stripping all of the paint off the table top and staining it the color of my cabinets. What do you think? Any ideas?
