French Country table re-do...with a bit of Chevron Fabric...

 We found a beautiful French country 
table set with 6 chairs
not too long ago...

chairs ~ before
 At first I toyed with keeping them natural...

 but in the end they ended up
 painted my favorite cottage white.
I distressed them lightly and 
we sanded down the top and gave it 
a fresh coat stain and 4 coats of varnish.
 I chose grey chevron for the seats...
 This set was going with us 
to our booth at the local 
Apple-butter Fest.
 I am happy to report it was one 
of the first things to sell!

  5. Good Morning Leigh Ann, I'm not surprised the table and chairs were the first thing you sold. If I lived near you I would have bought them as they would look lovely in my kitchen. Sadly, I live too far away in England. I thoroughly enjoyed your post and found you via Savvy Southern Style. I am so glad I did as I have become a new follower. Best Wishes from England...Daphne

  6. Looks Fabulous! I'm aching to paint my chairs a buttermilk white, but they have rush seats.

  7. I just bought two tables as projects, and this post is cementing my inspiration to stain the top, paint the it!!!
