At Art is Beauty, Karin got a call from a relative saying another relative was clearing out all the old furniture in his basement. She scored a couple of good freebies, and she also got this dining set that had seen better days. The table and chairs were in such bad shape that Karin didn’t work on it right away.
“Much like Humpty Dumpty, I had to put them back together again,” Karin laughs. “This ended up being a 4 chair set, because I need parts from 2 of the chairs to fix 4 of the chairs.” After making structural repairs to chairs and table, the painting began. She used three colors of CeCe Caldwell Chalk Paint to create a warm, weathered look for the tabletop. For the chairs and the table base, Karin chose a creamy yellow color. She recovered the seats with a pretty, new fabric. You’d never guess now that this table was almost a throw-away!
