After receiving so much help with my DIY project, I thought I should post the before and after pictures. Here is the original thread: [url]http://forums.houseandhome.com/showthread.php?t=25537&highlight=Transform&f=12[/url]
Here is the table prior to painting:
and the pedestal, which I love...
I sanded and primed the table. I used BIN 123 to prime. I should have had it tinted though...Anyway, I used Ralph Lauren Turret Stair (a deep chocolate brown) recommended in my original thread. I love this colour so much! For the table top, I sewed a round fabric topper and covered that with a glass topper. All in all, it was a great project, but being a perfectionist, it took me a long time to complete.
Here is the table now:
Sorry the pics aren't great but I think you get the idea.
I'm still searching out chairs. I have a toddler so easy maintenance is key and the table is in our kitchen -- so appropriate casual chairs are what I am looking for...I am not fond of the chairs that came with the set. I'd rather add contrast with a cream or white wooden chair with clean lines...Haven't decided yet...
Thank you for all the much needed help and suggestions. :)
