I bought a dining table and chairs off Craigslist several months ago and it sat in my dining room taking up space, collecting junk. I had towels on the chairs because the fabric was dirty, and it was just a mess. I started working on the chairs a few weeks ago and kept dragging my feet, not really getting it done. I didn’t really know what I was doing and I was scared to mess it up.
Today we had a housewarming party and I really wanted the table and the chairs to be done so everything would look nice. So I was outside in the garage every night last week stripping the old stain, sanding, painting, more sanding, more paining and then I put a top coat on the table. I can’t believe how different everything looks with a little bit of paint and new stain. I love how it turned out and it was much easier than I expected it to be.
I’m totally hooked on redoing furniture. I have a buffet for our TV that’s next on my list of things to do. Hopefully it won’t sit in my garage until Christmas!
