I finished this space a while ago, but I have been so busy project deep I haven't had a chance to show you all the new pretty things happening!
Here is our new dining nook that looks especially pretty in front of our DIY planked wall.. (more on that later)
This whole makeover was inspired by a free farmhouse style table my Mom brought to me. She knew I could do something with it. It had an ugly yellow oak top before.
So I quickly stripped the existing finish, and used a stain made out of vinegar + steel wool for the top.
The top is aged and inconsistent grey... much like old barn wood. I kinda love it.
I sealed it with a polycrylic + wha-la.
I left the legs as they were white, chippy, a little dirty... ya know adds character.
I paired it with some Target industrial style chairs that I found on a local yardsale page (lucky day!!) and a thrifted bench I quickly painted white.
So pretty much, this entire area is second hand. How awesome is that?!
