Shabby Chic Redo and Redo again Dining Table!

Hello, I am so excited I finally finished this Dining Set!  If you read my previous posting on the dilemma on what should I do to Redo this Beautiful Antique Set, well finally I have finished the job.

This was a very vintage 1924 Crocker Chair Company set  6 chairs and 3 leafs which I purchased and restored.  I listed this as an antique on Craigslist.  No success and my Shabby Sole told me to do it in the Shabby Style in the first place, but that is a long story to why I didn't.  Well now it is Shabbied and I love the results!

I want to thank Kristy at http://4theloveofwood.blogspot.com/ she was the only one to comment on my post and I really appreciated that.  She was on the same creative thought as myself, so off I went to buy drop cloth and get to work painting  the set.


                                                                             BEFORE

Sanding the purchase

6 chairs which I had to remove the blue seat covers
and found a second cover that was too stained, so I put on the maroon material
for the first redo.



This came out very nice after 4 coats of Walnut stain
which is the original color.  I had 3 leafs, which also were sanded and stained.

First Redo

2nd Redo and all Shabbied
drop cloth seat covers, white base and white chairs
lightly distressed. 

Captain chair, wonderful wood details
notice some of the leafs in the background





All finished and I am very glad to have my Shabby mind free to work on other pieces of furniture,
I feel good about this and the new life this set does have!
Thank you for looking!
Update:   This Set was sold in 16 days to a Wonderful Young Family, that makes me very happy it has a Home! Shabby Success!  Thank you again Kristy @ 4 the Love of Wood!

I got your email on my way home via my blackberry and couldn't wait to see the results on the home pc. FABULOUS!!!! So glad you did it and it definetly turned out great. All the work you did to finish the top surface now offers such a deliciously rich look against all the white charm.

It's beautiful, it was nice after the first redo but the shabby look just put it over the top.
