The Finished Table and a Winner

3.01.2012



The table is done. I think. Yes, it's done. For now.


As I told you last Friday I painted the table with Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen. This is a pretty greige color.

I added chalk paint in the color Graphite to these crevices. I purposely did it messy.

Instead of using just clear wax or dark wax I mixed some of the Graphite chalk paint with some clear wax. I love the way it gave the paint color more depth and filled in the worm holes with the black color.





 Here it is sitting between my two new chairs. Please excuse the cord. I hate cords.

Now you see why I painted the table. As you can see I have new chairs and I am loving the new look.

They are the Kooboo wicker chairs from World Market.

I was going to have the two old chairs either upholstered again or have slipcovers made, but I didn't want to spend that much money on them again. For now I will use these in here until I find some comfy club chairs at an affordable price. I have used the other chairs for a gazillion years and it was just time for a change. They will be going to a consignment shop.

I  took my grain sacks and wrapped them around the white cushions for now.

When I find more chairs I can move these to the dining room since they are made to sit at a table. They sit very high.

Here is a reminder of the before.


So what do you think?

The winner of the Lady Lynn's Gift Boutique giveaway is #24 Sandy A.
Sandy's blog profile is not public so I couldn't find the blog. Hopefully Sandy will see this and claim her prize. If not I will choose another winner tomorrow.

Have a super day. I am going out to lunch and shopping with my mom and sister to celebrate my mom's birthday that was on 2/25.

  5. I am in TRUE LOVE with these chairs. I also have a couple club chairs and ottoman that have seen better days. While I can't replace them right now, I just ordered a couple white slipcovers and holding my breath that they work. If not, I may ck out our World Market, too.
    Could you tell me where you got the pillow on the sofa with the red stripe? I am going to want new pillows for the chairs (IF the covers fit):)

  15. Our World Market closed two years ago and I don't think there are any others in the Minneapolis area. I miss it.
    And the chairs - love that color especially with the table. I have some wickery rattan in my porch and it's just a pine color. I wonder what would happen if I did a wash of a couple colors this spring.... add it to the list!

  21. I love your new chairs! I had seen them online and had considered them for head chairs at my dining room table, but I dint know if they would be comfortable. So, what do you think? I definitely love the way they look and I love them with your redone table! I think if I ever came to your house you wouldn't be able to pry me from this room!

  42. Love the table with the chairs. You can edit out the cords but it takes time you probably do not have.

  43. I really should not have read this post. That lamp is AWESOME! I assume it's new, too! The greige looks great w/ the new wicker chairs. I almost bought ones just like them at TJ Maxx, and they were gone when I went back for them. I think I'm starting to collect chairs, too. ;o)

  44. The table looks so good!! I think the color is perfect! The new chairs are nice and can be used in most any
    room when you get the urge to re-arrange. I love furniture that is like that, 'cause I'm always moving things around! lol

  56. Everything looks great, Kim....the table and the new wicker chairs. Great idea. It's so hard for me to consider getting rid of something I have (instead of recovering it), but you have convinced me. Sometimes a fresh new and different look is just what you need! Linda

  63. I love the new chairs - though I loved the old ones too! I basically LOVE your sunroom and everything in there! lol! We had a sun room at our previous house- it was on the wrong side of the house to get much sun- but I did love sitting in there with all those windows!!
    Thanks for linking up!

    I want some of those Kooboo chairs and have been looking for them. I have seen them on the World Market website but we don't have one here and they don't ship. I wish I'd ordered some when I imported furniture...probably could've gotten them for next to nothing! I just LOVE them! They look perfect in your space!

    Nancy

    p/s I love your new (antique) olive jar in your recent post! They are so beautiful!
