Dining Set Transformation- Part Four- Before/After

OK, Here it is- in the day time.
In natural light.
My new love...

And here are everybody's favorite- Before and Afters-

Please excuse the mess in the Befores and the dirty chalkboard in the Afters

Ha, ha- this one reminds me of the 'Find the differences in these two photos' from Highlights.

What started out as a wonderful, free from a friend, blonde wood dining set with green seat pads evolved to a banquette, with red/khaki stripped seats (and a little girl on top!) at the old house

to creamy Valspar Churchill Hotel White spray painted, then lightly distressed chairs with retro lemon and yellow fabric pads; a hand painted Valspar Lake Country blue table with Dark Walnut stain rubbed legs and a Dark Walnut top.

All that remains is the light wood Ikea bench on the other side of the table.
Everyone seems to agree- it needs to be the creamy Valspar Churchill Hotel White color for now with a fun retro lemon fabric pad when the girls are a little older.
I'm loving the transformation.
What do you think?

Visiting from Fingerprints on the Fridge - Your table and chairs look sooo much better! I love the color of the table legs, the chair color and then the top of the table looks beautiful stained. Great job!

Hey Meagan, it's Stacy's mom! I'm not sure how to leave comments on these blogs, but I thought I'd give it a try....

GREAT job on the table and chairs. Very impressive, me likey! The time and patience it takes to complete something so lovely is well worth it. I think you may have inspired me to continue with my furniture makeovers! Much Love.
