How to update your dining room table? Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

How are you? I can’t wait to share this week’s furniture makeover with you! Not because it’s a one of a kind piece, but because we took something ordinary and made it anything but ordinary!! This set was a custom order for Genevieve and Telly. They had already bought our most recent Chevron Dresser and then decided to upcycle some furniture they already owned. They are in the middle of some major home renovations so forgive the before pics.

We recently posted a tutorial on how to get a rubbed through Restoration Hardware style finish. When they sent me over this set, I instantly thought that finish would look great! Most often we sand and stain the top of a table, but with the more modern style of this table, I thought the rubbed through look would be perfect.

We used a black enamel paint and then sanded through it with a 200 grit sand paper! You can read the full tutorial here. The only additional step is that you need to put at least 3 coats of a protective clear coat over the top since dining room tables get a lot of wear and tear and could get scratched easily. I also adore the fabric for the seat from Hobby Lobby!
