Refinished Table and Chairs!..

Feathering My Nest has moved!... come check all of this out over at

Success!.. okay so I just had to throw in the before shot before putting in the photos with the finished chairs...  only two are finished... but that'll do for the party this weekend and I'll finish the other two on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday... as long as they're done for Christmas Day!.. hehehe...

...the before shot... EW!.. but here they are now!..

The chairs got sanded and then primed with Kilz... then once that was dry I sanded the chairs by hand with some 200/320 grit... then wiped them down... tack ragged them... sprayed them this lovely cream... sanded them all again with 400 grit... I used 100 grit too to assist in the distressing... and then minwax furniture polished them...

I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!.. yey!.. all that hard work was worth it!.. and the laundry too... I have a full washer load of dusty clothes from working on these chairs this past weekend and week!..

Linking up to these lovelies:


  1. You should be proud b/c your table and chairs turned out beautifully! What a great makeover!

  2. Wow, I love the way your dining set turned out! I love the cream, and spray paint is my best friend too!

  3. wow! what a difference! You did a great job. I love before and afters!!!

  4. Melanie - I haven't had a lot of luck with cans of spray paint - to paint this set I used interior latex paint and sprayed it with my paint gun!

  5. Hey Lacey,

    I was going to ask what color of spray paint you used, till I read all the comments.

    Now I will ask, what type of spray gun do you have? I haven't had much success with using them.

    Please let me know via e-mail or on my blog as I might forget to look here for the answer. Thank you!

  6. Great makeover and thanks for joining the party!

  8. Your table is tops! It's a nice size and can be used for serving and meals. Good idea...

  9. I have a solid oak table and want to do the same thing. I don't think I have the patience to do the chairs. Besides I don't really like them, they are too country looking. We'll see. Great job.

  10. You did a terrific job. It look wonderful!!! It changed the look of the whole set!

  11. OMG! I bought the same style table a few months ago and painted it the same color. Love IT!
    YOu can see my table here....

    Have a great weekend!
