i mentioned a while back that my husband and i were refinishing a dining table and chairs. well it's done and since i think most people appreciate a good before and after i thought i'd share (plus i'm tired of studying).
we'd been wanting to purchase a table and chairs for quite sometime so after much stalking of craigslist and local ads we finally came upon this table. i'll admit it isn't quite my style, i prefer a more modern look, but this one was solid wood and a great price. sold! the table top needed a bit of help so i had the choice of keeping it light oak (not a fan) or staining it another color. i went with a dark walnut stain and i'm loving the results. i have to give all of the credit to my husband. i think i sanded a couple chairs and gave
too much a lot of input.
and the after:
