Refinished Dining Room Set

I have finally finished the dining room set! I have a couple more of the cain chairs that came with it to refinish though...good enough for now:)

You would never believe I pulled this set out of the dumpster!!!


I still need to paint that back wall.

I bought those two claw foot chairs at a thrift store a while back for $8 each! LOVE  THEM!! I refinished those two in a light blue.

In the pictures the blue chairs appear more like a bright blue but they're not.

I reupholster the four chairs in a linen like fabric.

A shot of the BEFORE!

I had a hard time finding some BEFORE was so ugly that I tried to never get a full shot of the set!!

A shot of the mid way point!!

You can see more of the table refinishing in this POST.



I like mismatched chairs with dining room sets. It gives it a less formal feeling.
