Cutlery Graphic Dining Table & Spindle Back Chairs

This is the first time I experimented with paper graphics on a table and I'm really pleased with the results.

This dining setting consisting of 6 spindle back chairs and table was a huge job, but one I am extremely proud of.

Here is the table when I purchased it.

Such a pretty table and who could resist those gorgeous spindle back chairs!

And after ...

Firstly I sanded the varnish off the entire table and all the chairs.  Then I applied a coat of White Knight Stain Stopper undercoat to prevent any tannin leaking through.  Finally I applied two coats of flat white.

I found the amazing vintage cutlery graphic on The Graphics Fairy, and was able to enlarge it dramatically using Block Posters.

After printing the graphic out spanning over 9 A4 pages, I cut it out and matched up all the pieces on the table.  Then I used Mod Podge to secure it to the table.

I then sealed the top of the graphic with another coat of Mod Podge.

  Finally I applied 3 coats of clear furniture wax to the top of the table.

The chairs were lightly sanded around the edges and sealed with 2 coats of clear furniture wax also.

I love the way it all turned out!  I'm adding this one to my favourites list! :)
