I restyled this dining setting a short while ago and wanted to do a quick share.
The table was a similar colour to the chairs. Don't you just love spindle back chairs.
I decided to paint the table base with white chalk paint, give in a light distressing and coat with clear varnish.
For the table top I sanded it back to the original wood with my belt sander. That sander really does make short work of things.
Then applied 3 coats of clear varnish to seal and protect. I love the details of the natural wood.
