I found this darling dining set in an unloved corner of Goodwill. It was just what a client was looking for.
It was a well built mid century set made of maple by Mainewoods furniture.
All of the pieces received a good scrubbing and light sanding.
Other than one area on the tabletop that needed a bit of wood filler, it was in amazing shape.
I always begin by painting my pieces up side down. Then I give them a day…or two depending on my schedule… to dry before flipping them over to do the top. This insures that the most viewed angle stays smudge and chip free.
I used Valspar Naivete White flat spray Paint. It was the exact shade of white I was looking for. Soft and pretty.
The finish was impeccable. I think it really does boil down to the prep work.
The table was simply dressed with placemats, napkins and plates from HomeGoods. The chair pads came from Anna’s Linens.
On Wednesday I will share the adjoining space which was decorated on a budget.
