Antique Dining Table and Chairs Restyle



Here is my latest furniture restyle. I found this table and chairs on ebay and knew they needed my TLC. And I was drawn to those lovely claw feet and the curvature of the chairs.  Like most my furniture makeovers, I decided to go with a distressed white.

Here is what they use to look like ...


Bleak to farmhouse chic ...


I recovered all the seats with this cute black and white french designed fabric. And put new webbing on the underneath of all the seats.  Given their age the chairs needed it. 


I used three coats of DIY chalk paint on all the chairs and table. Then sealed them all with clear poly. The top I gave 3 coats so it is well protected.





I did consider keeping this one for myself, but have decided to give it a new home. Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested. 


Best wishes,
Julie

    1. Thanks Cynthia! I made that sign and I slip different inserts in like at Christmas and Easter. It's very versatile.

    1. Thanks Kris. I love redoing dining settings, but they are also very time consuming. I'm glad this one is finally finished. Only 2 more waiting in the garage. ;)

  4. Looks like a Duncan Phyfe? Not even sure if that's the spelling...but your makeover looks lovely! Amazing what a coat of paint and some new fabric can accomplish. Would love for you to share at Fridays Unfolded!

    Lovely job on this pretty Duncan Phyfe dining set!
    I would love to know where you got the fabric for the seats on the chairs. Also, would you share what brand of clear poly you use?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Juju, and thank you for dropping by. I'm in Australia and purchased the fabric from Spotlight, a craft and fabric store here. The poly I used is Cabot's Water Based Cabothane Clear Gloss Polyurethane for furniture. Hope this helps. All the best, Julie
