Getting a new dining room set is always exciting but a very expensive decision. Paying so much for mediocre design, detail, and wood turns out into a nightmare. Then, the thought of where my furniture may end up reaches an entirely different stress level.
Save the furniture.
I figured lets put some work to peel off the current stain coating and let’s try a different coat for a more dramatic look. (I must’ve been in a funny mood bc even my choice of fabric was a bit morbid but I must say it felt nice)
I went from this…
To this …
I personally still think it’s a beautiful piece but the stain kept coating unevenly and differently because of the wood filler I had to use in certain areas where my pup decided to take out his teething days.
After a few months of observing and secretly hating it I decided to go a different route with the set. :: Thankfully I had not touched the table itself aside from stripping it from its old stain and top coat.::
I began by searching for some inspiration everywhere I went and decided to paint it light and give the seats a more fresh brighter look.
I began sanding the entire stain away and as I was almost done with my first chair my dad stopped me and told me that first of all pregnant women shouldn’t be doing so much work 😏 and second of all the paint would cover the stain. So, I decided to lightly sand the rest of it just so the paint would be absorbed better and my hard work wouldn’t go in the trash lol.
