Breakfast Table Remodel : sneak peek

I have been working on this for a few weeks now and I still have a LONG way to go on it. I couldn’t resist posting a sneak peek, though, to give you a hint at what I am doing and planning. I plan to give a big reveal post when I am done but who knows when that will be….
Here are the chairs. White distressed. Let me just say that these were just about the end of me and were not intended to be distressed but they were such hell that I decided I would make the “distressing”  that did happened (ok, more like evidence of an inexperienced furniture remodeler) be more purposeful. lol. In the end, I think they turned out really well but I will tell the whole story later.
Here is what I plan to make the window treatments out of:
I love every bit of this fabric. The picture doesn’t do it justice but there’s a little bit of shimmer in the threading.
Here is a sneak peek at the table leg. This is my favorite part of the story (also saving that for later aWinking smile). I love the character and plan to strip it and restain it (it has some pretty yucky varnish and scratches on the top)
Hopefully I can have the final reveal soon! I am going to wait till it cools down a bit outside before I tackle the table. It is just so dang hot and humid in Houston right now!!

Jessica, have you tried chalk paint? Not chalkboard paint. Its what my mom uses and she says its amazing! You usually only need one coat and absolutely no prep work. I think its a little pricey ($50/quart) but she says that that goes a very, very long way!

Love the distressed chairs!
