The ugliest table and chairs made pretty....

The other day I found a listing on craigslist for the ugliest table and chairs from the 60's or 70's. I felt so bad for the pieces that I wanted to give them a new life.....
I used a very shabby pale blue/gray color then distressed everything. The seats were in dire need of new fabric. I used scrap pieces from a drop cloth to accomplish this. Although I knew the transformation would be huge, it exceeded even my own expectations.....


  1. Awesome!! Looks like a completely different set!

  2. Pretty much the transformation..


  3. Amazing! Why don't you have your own TV show??? Everything you touch turns out gorgeous!

  4. What a fantastic transformation! It really is a nice set, just needed some love and attention. Love the chairs! Way to go! Hugs, Leena

  5. Such a big makeover! You did a great job. I also just revamped a dinette set in Old White.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Is that a linen fabric on the seats?

  7. I like your sensitivity to ugly furniture. If furniture were living they would be very grateful for the face lifts they get from you.
