Around the end of January, I ran across this 3 piece Provincial table and chair set while perusing one of my favorite local thrift shops. I left empty handed that day, but returned a few days later to find that it was still there. I excitedly filled my SUV with this set and got right to work once I got it home. I just knew I could make something really special, especially since it was structurally strong and oh, those curves!
It most certainly needed lots of help as you can see…
I started with the table, cleaning and lightly sanding the top and sides.
Next, I painted the top using a deep brown latex paint. This took several coats, then I waxed and buffed it to a shiny finish.
I used dark and clear wax, buffing everything to complete the finish.
I found this pretty flower pattern fabric at Joanne to reupholster the seats. This was certainly the most challenging part of the project.
Quite a difference ey? I really love how it came out. I loved it so much that I listed it on our town local yard sale page and it sold within a couple of hours.
What a difference some paint makes!
