DYI: Dining Table

As you all know we can’t seem to stay in one apartment for very long. So in our moving experience this time around we decided to refinish a dining table we bought off of Craigslist for $20. We used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, which I HIGHLY recommend! It’s fabulous to work with especially if you’re like we were and had no clue what we were doing ha.

This was what ours started out as.

Of course we started with the legs because those are really easy to redo considering we did mess up twice ha. So once we had our technique down pat we then completed the top. We painted 2 coats of Barcelona Orange then two coats of Provence. Then we sanded our hearts out!!

This was definitely the hardest but most rewarding part! It took 2 days but we achieved the look we were wanting. Lastly, we waxed it with the Annie Sloan Soft Wax and let it cure for 72 hrs right before we moved.

Now we have this lovely wonderful table!! It was a wonderful way for us to spend time together and I love how it turned out!!  We definitely would recommend the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to anyone wanting to refinish furniture it is amazing to work with! Next up are the chairs!!
