Hello Crafty Friends!
We recently moved upcountry and I am hooked on farmhouse decor for our beautiful new home.
Months ago before we moved I showed my hubby a picture of a farmhouse table on Pinterest and how I could take my new found hobby of chalk painting and create the same look for a lot less than the $1,500 - $3,000 ones I was finding online. He really liked it and the very next day, on a local FB garage sale site in our area, a heavy pine table with leaf and 6 chairs with built in cushions were posted and I immediately snapped it up for $240. It was meant to be!! ;) (I am never this lucky when it comes to these kind of things.) hehe!
After months of holding it in storage I am now able to start working on it. First off, I wanted to redo the chairs with the arms. One for a guest room and one for my new desk chair. So far I have got one done. I will continue to show as I progress with all the different things I plan to do with the remaining pieces. Not all are going around the farmhouse table I will create soon.
So to start, here is the first chair I up-cycled for one of the guest rooms...
VIOLA!!! Looks perfect in the guest room. All the furniture is dark, so this just brightens it all up. I am very happy with how it turned out.
Next I will tackle the table. Until then...
