Vintage Cherry Dining Table

I scored big on this table. The owners were practically giving it away. But as you can probably imagine, that was for good reason. It was in rough, and I mean ROUGH, shape.

Vintage Jacobean Dining Set

This unbelievable Jacobean, oak dining table set had been my customer’s family for decades. It’s constructed of solid oak and meant to last several generations. But after my customer’s first unsuccessful try at staining it gray, she brought it to me and explained her vision. No more dark blue-gray. It needed to be a soft, warm, taupe-gray. so that it would blend in with her elegant dining room features. I ended up mixing a paint wash of the same paint color we used on the base, and used it to “stain” the table top. It was the perfect solution!

Duncan Phyfe table & 6 chairs

This item has been sold IMG_8575
Vintage Duncan Phyfe style mahogany pedestal table. This table was in relatively good condition when I found it, so all it needed was a little freshening up. I did this by stripping the top and giving it a rich, dark Kona stain, and painting the pedestals with a pale beige. I made the details pop out by adding a mocha glaze and distressing the edges just a tiny bit. Now this table is ready for all your family gatherings.  It includes a 12″ leaf so you can easily fit up to 8 people!

The matching set of 6 vintage chairs coordinate perfectly. They have also been updated with a richer stain, new foam and gorgeous yellow and cream fabric.  The set includes 1 captain’s chair with arms, and 5 side chairs.

This cute little side table was screaming out for a modern update. The old look was right at home in your grandparent’s house. But the new, lighter color scheme will look perfect in any modern home. I added a pale taupe paint and whitewashed. The drawer pull was updated with glossy jet black paint.

Elegant Cherry Dining Table

So simple yet so pretty.  This delicate looking, cherry dining table received a rich, chocolatey stain on the top, and a fresh cream colored paint on the skirt and base.  And these funky 70s cane back chairs got an identical paint job to match!  Now they’re a match made in heaven!

Rock Maple table with 4 chairs

This item has been soldimage

Solid rock maple kitchen or dining room table. If you’re looking for a super solid, durable table to withstand years of hard use, then this is the table for you.  The legs are a glossy, light gray.  For the top I did a paint wash, which is a mix of part water, part paint. This gave it just the right shade of gray, so you can still see the beautiful wood. The set of 4 matching chairs have been updated with the same paint as the table base, new foam and designer fabric in the same gray tones. All pieces are solid wood, which is hard to find these days!

Modern Duncan Phyfe style

This item has been soldIMG_6720
Oh yes I did! I’ve done so many unbelievable makeovers on vintage Duncan Phyfe style tables, for my wonderful customers. And after each one I was so sad to see it go. It seemed like it would be the perfect choice for our kitchen. I really was going for a beachy, aged look. But after living it for a while the rest of the family decided that we really needed to go back to a round table in our kitchen. And since my look was so specific for our home (gray, weathered wood), I felt like I needed to change it up a bit before selling. The dark is a rich, dark walnut.  The double pedestals received a satin creamy white, with light distressing.  And the table retains it’s original brass toe caps.

This table will fit 6 comfortably without the leaf, and 8 with it. Take a look at the 2 transformations! [Read more…]
