For many of us, our dining room table is the hub of our home.
And while I would love to shop for a new dining room set,
I am just not ready to part with our old table yet.
We have so many memories around this table.
Candles blown out…
Thanksgiving meals shared…
prayers said, and homework done
all around a little table I bought
after we bought our first home over
10 years ago.
So I had to figure out what I was going
to do to update this memory filled piece
|~before her fab makeover~|
The first requirement was staying on a thrifty budget.
So that meant paint, slipcovers, and a new area rug.
I already had the slipcovers which all fit great on
the mod podge of two different styles of dining
room chairs. Next was the color. I chose an
off-white color as I wanted it to match the
slipcovers and also provide a clean, streamlined
look. Last was the area rug. I found this
new, larger area rug at a local store for just
under $100, not too bad!
Next I used a few coats of Howard Feed N Wax
to protect the paint and make it glow.
I am super excited about how it turned out,
the transforming power of paint never
ceases to amaze me.
Do you have a favorite piece of furniture
that you cannot bear to part with?
If it’s time for an update, it doesn’t need
to be expensive or difficult to give
your furniture a fresh new look
just in time for summer.
Happy decorating friends, now I’m off to
work on wedding decorations, we only have
5 weeks left until our backyard wedding
for our eldest daughter, so exciting!!
