Table Makeover with Vintage Furniture Paint
I had such great success with my Pink Dresser Project, I knew I wanted to use the same paint, Vintage Furniture Paint, for a set of table & chairs we recently purchased cheap. The pieces had a beautiful wood-stain finish on the tops of both the table and chairs. The legs, apron, and backs were all a creamy white. Well, creamy white with a dash of kids’ paint and lots of wear.
I’ve refinished tables before with great results, but I knew my friend Denise was a professional. She has the workspace, the materials, and the time to get projects completed. When her quote came in well under the budget I expected, I happily turned over all the pieces to her care for refinishing. Last week, she delivered everything and I am thrilled with the results.
She did a marvelous job matching the straight-slat side chairs we already owned. Now, the more intricately designed chairs with the wooden seats are being used at the ends of the table.
I love to do projects on my own, it feels strange to pass off any kind of crafty thing to someone else…especially when it’s going with hard-earned cash. However, I have learned over the years that I can often come out with a better product and better use of my time, when I leave certain jobs to the professionals.
Denise completed the entire project, including pickup & deliver within days. I wouldn’t have even been able to start the project in that timeframe. She got the finish to nearly a perfect match to our existing chairs. She even supplied a small jar of touch up paint should we need it in the future. I was able to spend time holding appointments for my business and earning much more than it cost to have the table refinished.
