This past week I have taken on the task of painting my kitchen table and chair set. I inherited this set when my mom sold the family cottage and it has worked well in our home but it was time for an update. I’m trying to reduce the amount of oak tones in my house and changing over to darker browns and beiges. My friend Wendy sells Plaster Paint at her quilt shop in Swan River, MB so I bought a container of Espresso for the top and two cans of Sweet Cream for the legs and chairs. I used two coats of liquid wax to create the shine. The best part about this job was you don’t have to sand down the furniture before painting, just give it all a good wash! And with all the spindles on my chairs that made the job so much easier.
Here is the before and after! Love the after!
I have also been ice dyeing again! I tried some new colour combinations.
This was Slate Blue and Orange!
