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.
