Hi Scratch Mommy Reader! My name is Anne and I enjoy painting furniture!
Keeping a piece that could be thrown away and giving it new life is something that gives me joy and and a sense of accomplishment. I look at a piece of furniture at home that I painted and I sigh in disbelief, “Really? I did this?” You can too!! All you need is a paint brush, paint, and most of all your imagination and creativity! So, join me as I walk you through How To Paint Your Own Dining Room Table!
I’ll give you a brief history. This table is our very first dining table given to us by my mother-in-law. I just couldn’t let it go. It is very special to me because it reminds me how my husband and I started as a family. It got scratched and bruised as we moved homes and every time we sat down to eat I would see the imperfections, but also see the possibilities for it. I wanted to have a newly painted table by Thanksgiving and I’m glad I finished just in time. Yay!
Here’s how it looked before. It really did need a makeover, right?
Here is a sneak peek of it in the process. It looks like a tedious job. It had all of the groves that needed to be filled in, but I tell you…it was all worth it in the end!
Are you thinking of refreshing your dining room by buying a new dining table? Or any new furniture? Think again. You can save money, keep the memories, and design your own just by painting it! And did I say, you’re saving the environment too?!
