Crate & Barrel Inspired Dining Table and Chairs

Hi all!  Today, I have a pretty dining room table and chairs transformation to show you.

This table has been through some stuff.  It was purchased years ago with a stain finish.  The owner decided she wanted something different and the table was painted.  She wasn't loving the painted look so she tried to fix it.  That's where I come in.  The table and chairs came to me like this.

There was some damage control needed.  :)

It is a great solid wood table so we had plenty of options.  This is the inspiration picture she sent me.

The Crate & Barrel table in the picture is a concrete top which is hard to mimic with wood.  If you paint a wood top grey it doesn't have the variation or texture of concrete. It was decided to go with a weathered grey finish on the top and the distressed wood look on the base and chairs.  The cushions also got an update with some new fabric.

This was a lot of work.  All of these pieces had to be stripped and sanded to get rid of all that paint.  It was a success and the transformation is beautiful.  This was the first time I did a finish like this and  I am loving it!
