Painted Kitchen Table and Window Seat
We've have had this dinette set for almost 14 years and it was starting to look its age. The finish was coming off and the veneer had some damage in a couple small places. This little table fits perfectly with the window seat in my breakfast nook, so getting rid of it was not an option.
Table and Chairs
The table top got stripped(Citristrip Stripping Gel) and damaged areas were repaired with some wood glue and stainable wood filler. We stained Dark Walnut. The bottom part of the table to be painted was sanded and primed. We painted off-white, distressed with some sandpaper and then applied Valspar Translucent Color Glaze. After brushing on glaze, with a damp cloth, we lightly rubbed off excess until desired color was achieved. When everything is thoroughly dried, apply polyurethane. The top especially needs a lot, I think we did about 4 coats.
Like with the table, for the chairs we stripped the seat because we re-stained it. The back and legs were sanded, primed, painted, sanded again, and glazed. Polyurethane the whole thing, extra coats on the seat.
In addition to the jacked up table, the window seat also needed some help. It was stained the same generic oak finish that our cabinets used to have and it definitely would have looked horrible next to the table after we refinished that. I wanted to do something different and interesting, so...Pinterest saves the day again! After I saw this post from Domestic Imperfection, I knew what to do with my window seat.
The window seat got stripped and sanded. I then stenciled on a design with white paint. I sanded again to give a more distressed look then re-stained(Special Walnut) and applied 3 coats polyurethane.
