A Seat At the Table

This vintage drop-leaf table and wheel back chairs had been in the family of the previous owner for 50+ years, but the dining set had sat un-used and unloved for some time. I could see the potential in these wonderful items and knew that whilst they were well used, they only required a small refresh and a little creativity. 

The joy of using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is that the surface requires little prep. If you prefer getting stuck in straight away then this is a great option - no sanding, stripping or peeling required! As long as the surface is clean the paint will go on easily.

On this occasion I opted for 'Original' - a bright, off-white colour that I was hoping would be the perfect contrast against the oak table-top colour, but still suit any room. I hand painted two to three coats of the chalk paint was followed by two coats of the Annie Sloan Clear Wax, to both seal the colour and protect the paint. 

 

The same treatment was applied to the chairs as well as sanding the table top and leaves. After applying a fresh coat of Briwax Clear wax polish and buffing when dry, the to make this a wonderful set that would suit any kitchen or dining room. The finished products can be seen below:
