Refurbished Dining Room Furniture

I am absolutely thrilled! I have finally completed the refurbishment of my mother-in-law's old, seventies dining room furniture for my dining room.

I had never liked this furniture which my mother-in-law had handed down to us with its heavy, dark wood and old fashioned, velvet upholstered seats, saggy springs etc but I knew that that there was hidden potential and I knew exactly what I wanted to create.

I painted the furniture in the same lovely egg shell which I had used previously, when I had refurbished two decorative chairs for our entrance. I also used vanilla cream to highlight some of the carvings in the beautiful wooden base of the table and on the chair legs.

To complete the refurbishment I chose a beautiful cream fabric with deep red stripes which gave the chairs a fresh, elegant look.

I think that you will agree that it was well worth the time and effort involved - just look at the finished furniture - fresh, elegant and very, very comfortable.....
