Dining Room Table Makeover

This is the project that I absolutely fell in love with and was inspired to do by Brooke at All Things Thrifty. We've been wanting a bigger table for awhile and thanks to Brooke I now had an affordable way of getting something that I absolutely love! I posted our table on KSL (local classified adds) and sold it in a half hour. I started hunting down and searching for furniture at local thrift stores and classified adds and finally found a table at Savers Thrift Store. It is old and heavy and built to last, but it needed some love. I found my chairs at the D.I. (local thrift store) and on KSL and paid $5 each for most of them. A total steal and after some color and new fabric they are fabulous! Of course that is my biased opinion. Unfortunately just over a month ago my computer crashed and took my external drive with it and I don't have any of my before pictures. I wish you could see the transformation! I am absolutely in love with it! For the table, chairs, fabric, primer, spray paint and glaze (enough to last me a long while) I spent about $160. We sold our old table for $100 so we spent $60 out of pocket and I now have a table that extends to seat 8 comfortably.

I'd love to hear from you so please leave a comment and click to follow me. I hope you enjoy!

*Krylon spray paint colors (glossy finish): Ivory, Raspberry, Blue Ocean Breeze, Bahama Sea, Pumpkin Orange, Bauhaus Gold and Ivy Leaf.







*UPDATE
Some fabulous people that my husband works with were able to fix our external drive and we now have all of our pictures! So fabulous for me and what it means for you you ask? You get to see the before pictures of my table! Enjoy!

Love your dining room! I wanted to do the missmatch thing too, but then I found 5 matching chairs for $25 that I really like so I just don't know. Now they are just sitting there waiting for me to decide. I'm a total newbie to blogging and decorating here's what I've done so far http://findinglifeino-town.blogspot.com/2011/06/my-curtains.html
I definately need a better camera.

Oh my gracious...I LOVE this! I have been wanting to do this..totally fits my vision. We are planning a cross country move and I was just telling the hubby that I want to sell our dining set and re-do one once we get to TX and make the chairs mis-matched...now I can show him what I mean, lol!
