Wednesday's Projects Past - Farmhouse Style Vintage Green Dining Table & Chairs

This week I'm revisiting a Farmhouse Style Vintage Green Dining Table and Chairs I restyled 2 1/2 years ago.


 
Here's the before ...

I painted the chairs first.  I went with a vintage mint green colour that I mixed up myself.  


I decided to keep the original brown leather seats as they were in excellent condition.  I just used some leather polish to freshen them up.


The original upholstery tacks really give that vintage farmhouse feel.


While I painted the chairs and table legs mint green,
for the tabletop I decided to go with an aqua green to give it a subtle contrast.
Then I lightly sanded and distressed all the chairs and table to highlight and bring out all the beautiful details.  Finally, I applied 2 coats of furniture wax to seal and protect.


I wasn't sure whether I would keep the original glass top, but it really compliments the table and I love the way it reflects light. 


This setting went to a lovely new home and I often wonder if they love it as much as I enjoyed restyling it.  It still remains one of my favourite projects.
