Client Work..... Updated Dining Room Set
This is the finished project on a recent client request.
I live in an area that is supported by the tourism industry.... specifically, the weekly renting of vacation homes. Many of these homes were furnished several years ago and are in need of a little updating with regard to the home's decor.
This is where we started... wrought-iron table base and glass table top, with a total of 8 chairs that needed a little TLC. This home accommodates 10 people, but the existing table could only seat 4 comfortably.... 6 chairs (as shown) is cramped. There is also seating for 4 at the counter.
Our first priority was to find a replacement table that would seat 6 comfortably and allow for 8 if needed. The table shown above is a very close version of what we found. Mine had a little more detail to the top and legs, and was stained a very dark mahogany.
The wood tones in the house are all very light, so it was a challenge to strip the table top back (hoping the tone underneath would not be reddish). We were lucky... it stripped back to a natural light color. One coat of light oak stain and 6 coats of poly and the client was thrilled.
The base and chairs are a custom mix I made using ASCP in Florence and Olde White.
The chairs were painted to match the table base and re-upholstered with Sunbrella fabric in a neutral tone to match the couches.
The original bar stools were worn out and needing some attention. They were also too tall for the counter height for adults to sit comfortably. We replaced them with standard wooden bar stools, and painted & sealed the tops to match.
The client loves the transformation!
For a fraction of the cost of replacement, we were able to change the entire look of the room with a little paint, fabric and a refurbished table.
