  • Z built us a banquette including benches and a new table
  • "New" dining room chairs
  • New paint under chair rail (Slate by Restoration Hardware)
  • New chair rail on each side of the fireplace
  • New paint color above chair rail (Ash by Restoration Hardware)
  • New light fixture in dining nook
  • New floors throughout kitchen, dining, and living room in Jan!!!

Before with "old" table and chairs (For Sale if anyone is interested:)

Then the new storage seating with cushions. 

Then my beautiful new drum shade pendant light! 

 Then Z built our new table and rounded the corners.

*New* chairs.  (Old chairs that Mama got for us for FREE.  The people she got them from said they came from a Golden Colon Corral.) 

 New Dining Nook After! (Check out those chairs!)

Before-ish (I always forget to take a REAL Before- so lets call this, Mid-Way) 


So before the table and chairs sat in the middle, and got in the way... 

After- We love our cozy banquette!

Looks great!! How did you do the chairs?? I am looking to refinish ours and am just nervous I will ruin them!

The chairs were sanded, then primed, then spray painted with 3-4 coats of Valspar Black Satin. Then we used one coat of spray poly to seal them. The cushions were just unscrewed and recovered with indoor/outdoor material (just stapled on). You can totally do it!
