The hunt is ON for a dining room table.
Of course, I'd love to drop a few thousand on a really nice one from Restoration Hardware but last time I checked, money doesn't grow on trees.
Which is shame because there are a whole lot of trees where we live!
I'm not really sure the exact look of the table I want but below are a few that I have pinned on Pinterest:
And I definitely want to get upholstered chairs like these that I've pinned:
So until the dining room table is found, we are using this table below for the time being.
Like most things in our house, it was a garage sale find for just $50.
I wasn't obsessed with how dark it looked with the chairs. There was just too much brown.
Nothing a little Annie Sloan chalk paint can't fix.
The top and base took two coats of Annie Sloan's Old White.
An improvement, I think.
I decided to leave this trim the original color to add some contrast.
I also didn't distress the table too much and instead just focused on the edges.
I can't decide whether the claw feet are cool or creepy!
Either way, I think they definitely look better painted than not.
One more look at the before and after...
