not your Grandma’s dining table was featured!

As some of you know, I took the rugrats to Paris last week to meet up with my folks.  I was torn whether to bring my big camera and laptop, but when push came to shove, (and I was staring down a 90 pound stroller!), I decided to rely just on my phone.

So when Maryann at and emailed while we were in France that she wanted to feature the cool dining table I painted for a friend, I was panicked. cane back chair painted with annie sloan duck egg

How can I blog?  What will I do?  Wah….cane back chair painted annie sloan duck egg with flower vase

The good news is that all of you survived…and so did I.  So this post is a few days late.  🙂cane back chair painted annie sloan duck egg

Didn’t the reupholstery turn out great on these chairs?  My friend chose well!annie sloan antique dining table and hutch

I like the clean, not overly distressed look of these pieces together.  Annie Sloan never disappoints!antique dining table and hutch Annie Sloan style

    What color did you use for the chairs? I’m about to paint my dining room table annie sloan old white and just haven’t been able to decide on a color for my chairs.

    Looks so nice!

  2. Because of this being a dining table did you use anything other than wax to seal the top?

    • imeeshu says

      Great question. No, I used wax and the top has taken serious abuse and needs to be redone. I’ve since been using either Modern Masters’ Dead Flat (3 coats) or Zars Ultra Max Antique Varnish (3 coats). Both are matte and hold up v well.
