Dining Room Table Makeover

I haven't had any big projects lately, and I was ready to find one! So, last week we set out yard saling. There was nothing really good, but as we were passing by I saw a table out of the corner of my eye, so we decided to stop. The table was pretty beat up, but came with 6 chairs and 3 leaves! 

The chairs had pads on them, so they could be recovered, and I loved the lines of the chairs and the tables. After asking questions and seeing what else we liked at the yard sale, we ended up leaving spending $100... More than I would normally spend, but we also had them throw in a little rocking chair, and a camp chair and the table. The table can get up to 8 feet long! We are calling it our thanksgiving table!

 We think it might be a duncan phyfe.... I kinda hope it is just a reproduction since I painted it all up! Oh well. So there are the before pictures, and here the after!!!

Amazing what a little sanding, primer and paint can do! I think I will keep this table for a while! I have a tendency to change out my table every year or so, so we'll see how long this one lasts!
