Painting a dining room table – not hair related!

So, we bought our dining room table secondhand – a first for us thanks to frugal living as mentioned here – which actually came from a friend who was selling it back in 2017 when we paid £10 for it – a total bargain considering what a well-built oak table it is. I love the design of the table and when we bought it, I really loved its the lovely “shabby chic” style with the wood top and the off white distressed effect on the legs and the chairs which is very modern!

Anyway, back to the table. Along these lines, that is the reason for a very long time, I’ve been needing to supplant our lounge area table and seats. The issue was, to purchase another table of comparative quality that likewise stretches out to situate more individuals when we need it as our own does isn’t modest in any way. Indeed, even the seats are extraordinary quality and I love the way that I can refresh them effectively as the seat cushions are removable.

That left me with one choice – to paint our lounge area table and seats and expectation like frantic that it worked and I didn’t destroy everything and need to purchase another set at any rate.

The cost in question in the event that I messed up implied that I simply continued placing it off until last end of the week when I chose that enough was sufficient and that the table makeover was occurring!

I truly set off for B&Q withing five minutes of choosing to do it and was back thirty minutes after the fact with a tin of chalk paint, a tin of clear varnish and a little roller prepared to begin.

The most effective method to paint your lounge area table! I’ll disclose to you what I did and what I used to paint our table very soon yet as a matter of first importance, here’s the before picture that I shared over on Instagram just before I began…

It says on the paint tin which is from Annie Sloan that you don’t need to sand or prime but I did give it a bit of a sand just because the dark stain that was used on the table last was really dark and I didn’t want it to show through. It probably wouldn’t have based on what it says on the tin but I just wanted to be sure.
