A couple of years ago I came across this on Craig's List - ( minus the buy me please - I added that lol )
Don't ask me how I saw the potential but I did ( can you imagine posting a photo like that when trying to sell something? )
I turned it into this
I was in the works to represent a line of paint at the time ( they shall remain nameless ) and that was a custom color that I created...........................Tiffany
The set sold ( mutliple offers actually ) very quickly.
If you think the pic of the table was bad - what about this lol?
I removed 3 layers of fabric AND the foam and started from scratch
Until they looked like this
You can see the original post where I transformed this HERE
And if that decrepit set could end up looking so pretty
Than this one we just picked up should be a piece of cake !!!
It's pristine !
I LOVE the detail on the back of the chairs
And can you see that hutch in the background?
We have that too
Not sure when I'll be able to get to it - but I'm itching to start !
Suzan says - This is far superior to our set - maybe we'll keep it - and sell ours ?
John says - NO !!!
Suzan says - But wouldn't it make sense - if it's a better set
John says - NO - I LIKE ours - there's nothing wrong with it
Poor John - really - for a man who can't stand change - to be with me must be excruciating lol
Because I think I'm keeping this one.
We'll break it to him in the New Year, shall we?
I think the faux fireplace should be ready tomorrow - tutorial and all - we just have to attach the " footings "
( which have been a nightmare - the only part of the entire process that we keep messing up on )
We're " Mitre Morons " really - even with a circular saw that does all the work for you.
I stained it - and you won't believe this but my Hero didn't like it stained - HE had to talk me into painting it
The whole world's gone topsy turvy I tell ya
But at the end of the day the wood look just wouldn't have fit in our bedroom - he was right
( that doesn't happen that often so I thought I'd mention it )
I plan on making one more for the living room - and that one will definitely be wood.
Any guesses on what color it got painted ?
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise
Anyway - why on earth am I showing you this?
This is a post about tables !!!
But stay tuned for Fireplace Friday LOL - ( I hope )
Have a wonderful day everyone !
Looking for inspiration?
