Kitchen Nook Transformation

Thanks for Sharing!

When we moved into our house, 2 years ago this month, my parents purchased us a table and chair set from Craigslist to fit into our new little breakfast nook.  I loved the lines of the table, but never really liked the chairs.  The table & chairs were oak stained and the chairs were very “country” in style.  So, for the last 2 years I’ve been wanting to change it up a bit and FINALLY this last month I’ve gotten it complete it.  A couple months ago I found 6 FREE chairs on craigslist.  The chairs were in need of some repair ~ some wood glue,  foam &  fabric and they were a new creation.  Check out these beauties!
Aren’t they pretty??? The chairs were pine colored.  I lightly sanded them, painted them black, lightly distressed them & poly’ed them up.  I did 1/2 of the chairs with this cute green & brown polka-a-dot fabric and the other 1/ 2 in a solid espresso brown fabric.
You can see in the pic above what the table looked like pre-make-over.
And here she is in all her crisp white glory…

I did the same process with the table ~ sand, paint, distress & poly’ed.
Here’s a view of her lovely legs… my favorite feature of my table.

I can say that I finally am loving my little kitchen nook.  
It’s amazing what a little paint can do.

  1. way cute! Our chairs are black now and I'm thinking of painting our table white too. Now I can see what it'd look like, thanks!

    And thanks for stopping by the other day 🙂

  2. I just love polka dots! The cushions are just adorable! Luck you to have a pedestal table- I am on the look out for one as my chairs dont fit under my table good because of the legs getting in the way!


  3. Wonderful job! I am always slow to start something like that, and once I get done, I think, "Why did I wait so long??" I love it!
