Dining Set Transformation-Part Two

It's killing me-I'm so in love with my table and chairs and it's not even finished yet!

When the paint dried on the legs, I grabbed my favorite tub of dark walnut stain and applied it all over, especially in the spindles, let it set for a few minutes, then wiped it off.

The color and texture is amazing!
I couldn't wait to see what it looked like next to the newly finished chairs so I brought two legs in and laid them on the edge of our make shift dining table (aka-the camping table with a white table cloth thrown over top)

Do you love it with the chairs?
The table top is currently in the garage getting the last few coats of stain.
I'm loving the richness of the color when I first put the stain on, but it lightens so much when I wipe it off.

The top needs work....but the legs-

I can't stand it! So much better.
So fabulous.
Do you agree?

Beautiful! I really love that shade of teal with the dark wood grain.
