Kitchen Table & Chairs Get a New Look / Farmhouse Style

My kitchen table and chairs have needed some tlc for awhile now,
and I finally decided that it was time to tackle this project!

Years of wear and tear from meals, to homework, to board games,
to crafts and diy projects.

It was time to give it a new look.

Here is a look at the before:
(wait til you see that after.. I just love it!)

I was going to be doing this project indoors due to the weather so I started by using a product
called Sand deglosser to prep the table without actually sanding.

After I had scrubbed down the top to remove the gloss and give the paint etc. something to
adhere to, I wiped it down with a damp cloth to make sure it was clean
and ready to go.

Then I chose to stain the top of my table.
I used a darker stain called 'dark walnut' by minwax.

It actually wasn't as dark as I thought it would be or had planned on, but I am really happy
with how it turned out because it still coordinates really well with the
matching china hutch and sideboard that all came together as a set.

I went over the top with the stain a couple of times until I got the color that I was really
happy with.

After it had dried well, (cured) I used several coats of polycrylic in a clear matte finish on
it to better protect the top.
(letting it dry a while in between coats - I will also be using it on the rest of the table/chairs as well)

I chose to paint the rest of the table using white paint.

After the paint had dried I used some sandpaper to distress the legs as well as the
skirting to give it a more rustic farmhouse style look.

Moving on to the chairs, this decision actually took me a little while.

I knew right away how I wanted to change my table, but I debated on what I wanted to
do to the chairs for a few days.  

Paint them white.
Paint them white with a dark stain on the seat.
Paint them black.  

Eventually I made up my mind and I chose to paint them black.

I love how they turned out!

So happy I decided to get this project done!

I also wanted to get new cushions for the chairs as well,
so I searched online and found some to try out.

They already arrived and are exactly what I wanted!

(plus they were on sale and a great price so that was a nice bonus!)

I am so happy with how this project turned out, I think it adds such a fun look to our kitchen,
and I'm glad I was able to get it all done before the holidays!
