I loved them. I mean really loved them. But then I started thinking that maybe it would be too plain. I wasn't really interested in making seat cushions for extra interest. So I knew it had to be something with the table top. A while back I had seen some great table top decals that were a chevron design. And I thought I could probably create it myself for way cheaper. So I headed back to Pinterest to look for some grey and white chevron inspiration. Of course I struck gold.
And now the table is in the kitchen. So so pretty. The best part is.... I spent less than $20!!!!! Yup, a total table make over for less than twenty bucks. I already had the white paint. I can't even remember what I bought it for.... But since it was already in my paint stash in the basement, it counts as free. I did buy the grey paint for about $8 at Walmart. And I grabbed a pint of Poly-Acrylic at Lowe's over the weekend to seal the table. I probably didn't really need to seal it, but with the Formica and all the time I spent, I didn't want to take any chances.
Somehow the combination of the new floor and the table face lift have made the dining room next to impossible to photograph well. Or maybe we can blame it on the snow outside. Blarg. So please forgive me. I tried. But, it looks gorgeous in person. I am so happy with it.
And since it's finally done, I'm linking up to the Winter Pinterest Challenge.
I have loved seeing some of your guys Pinspired projects. Now with the table all painted and pretty, I can't wait to show you guys my kitchen tour. If all goes as planned, I'll be back with the whole kitchen to show off later this week. Without the chairs still obviously. After conferring with a friend today, I think I've decided to just spray paint the chairs so I can be done. Where do you stand on spray painting furniture? I love it for small pieces and hard to paint items (like that turquoise table).
