Dining Chairs Before And After

I purchased this dining set on Craigslist for $300 and revamped it. The painted finish had yellowed, so I used liquid deglosser to prepare the surface and primed and repainted the chairs with Rustoleum Satin White Universal Spray Paint and used Rub 'n Buff to highlight the carved details on the edges. I painted the caning gold on the side chairs. I also reupholstered the seat cushions and the caning on the arm chairs. I still have the base of the table and one side chair left to redo.


I am very pleased with how my "new" dining room set turned out. It has been a lot of work, but it has also been very rewarding. Below is also a before picture of my dining room and the most recent after picture. There is still work to be done in this room, but I am currently enjoying it in its current state.

I'm joining Sarah's Before and After Party at Thrifty Decor Chick. Be sure to check it out!

Great Job girl! I see that you are just starting out and I also see that you are going to be a great blogger! You have sooo much talent! Can I say this: Please keep posts coming because you never know who wants to follow you, but may be hesitant because of your few post. Even if you are doing posts about inspirational photos are little some things that may not be something that you have done. I can't wait to see what else you do with your first place. I've read everything you've posted twice because I can't get enough!! Keep it coming! Check me out sometimes

Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by. I just checked out your friend's blog and I love it too. Don't be a stranger because I'd love to hear more from you and also I probably will need a few tips and advice from you! By the way... You guys find some of the best deals at the thrift stores you go to! I can only wish to find stuff like that.
