One cold day when Karin and her husband were out on a walk, they spotted this old table sticking out of a dumpster at their neighbor’s house. With permission from their neighbor, they fished the table out and took it home. Karin–who blogs at Art is Beauty–knew that with a lot of TLC and a couple of chairs, it could become a trendy bistro table!
After locating two chairs and making some minor repairs to the table, Karin got started on the makeover. She sanded down the finish on all three pieces, then restained and refinished the tabletop. Karin painted the chairs and the table’s pedestal with CeCe Caldwell Chalk Paint’s color “Slate”. It was a perfect match for the Liberty of London style fabric she’d found on a bolt at Goodwill and used to upholster the chair seats. Karin loves to add flair to her refinished pieces, so she selected a vintage graphic into a stencil and applied it to the table top with turquoise craft paint. The color of the graphic brought out subtle touches of turquoise in the chair fabric. It’s a stunning transformation, don’t you agree?
