The plan with the table was to paint the legs white and distress quite heavily. Doing this provided so much dimension to the set. Before you hardly noticed the legs and now they are somewhat of a focal point! I had been anxious to cover up the yellowish hint in the chairs and give it a fresh clean coat of white!
To match the white legs we painted the chairs white; however, we only lightly distressed them. I made a few trips to the store looking for new fabric for the chairs. I decided for now to leave them as is. We had recovered them last summer so I did not feel an urgency. Plus this darker chocolate color holds up better with seven of us eating around the table anyway.
Next up we are finished with our new desk. The transformation is stunning!
