It's finished! Aah. You may or may not remember that I started this project back in June. I posted about it in August after I got the first chair done. Yes, it took another 4 months to finish the other 3 chairs and the table! I really drug my feet on this one, but now it's done and there couldn't be a better way to end the year!
First I sanded everything down. If there is one lesson I learned through this whole process, it is to sand, sand, and then sand some more! I preserved the intricate table top design by staining it, then painted everything else. I really like the dual color scheme.
This was definitely not a beginner's project. Perhaps that is why it took me so long to finish - I am a novice when it comes to refinishing furniture. So I am proud of myself for pushing through and finally getting it done!
Needless to say, I LOVE how it turned out! But I will not be attempting any more big furniture makeovers for a very long time!
