Refinishing Dining Room Table and Chairs January 3, 2010

Here is what we started with:
Table is from Ikea a few years ago
Chairs are hand me downs from my sister.  I am pretty sure they were from Value City Furniture.



I started with the table.  I sanded, and sanded, and sanded the top.  The plan was to stain that part.  I then painted the bottom of the table to match the frame of the chair.  Kind of yellow/beige/weathered.  Please don’t mind the dust floor … it was 18 degrees outside so this happened right in the dining room.




Then the chairs – part 1.  The chair on the right is how they were, the one on the right is after I took the same stain as the table, and put it on then rubbed it right off the chair.  Trying to darken them up a bit. 




The Chairs – Part 2 – I covered the chairs with padding and fabric. 
The stain is not yet 100% dry (kind of worried, not going to lie) … but it is close to finished.
