I finished the redo on my dining room set. I like to re-claim things, and one of the chairs that sits around my table was $10.00 from The Salvation Army store---another is from a corporate sale at The Marriott Hotel in Tulsa for $15.00. I drive my husband crazy when I drag these things home, and say, "just wait...you'll see."
I really like how the harlequin pattern turned out on the table top. Forrest measured and taped off the diamonds for me. Thank goodness for his math skills...yeah college calculus classes and engineering courses. It made me happy that he was excited to help me create something new out of our old 1990's furniture. Even my husband liked the way it turned out---"SEE!"
My 1990's shaker style dining set had to go! It was still in great shape though, so I decided to transform the finish only.
I love the harlequin pattern on the table top. I used green leaf latex paint, a glaze in the lighter green diamonds, and then antiqued the entire surface with walnut stain.

Olive green walls, re-painted dining set, and bar stool, painted mirror, and a little funky fabric helped to pull together a new, fun space for our family to make new memories~
Hmmmm---what can I paint next??
