Here is my submission for So You Think You Can Decorate Week 4! The theme was "white." I honestly feel so honored that I'm still in the competition. All of these ladies are amazing! Please go vote!
Paint it White!
Our kitchen table was passed down from my parents. I spent many years with my crafts spread across this table as a child, and since I was three or four, I've thought of it as "mine." So when I got married, I was more than happy to claim it as my own. However, the 1980's oak just wasn't working for me. I stained the top a Red Mahogany, but that didn't fit either (so I never stained the bottom).
The sideboard is a Craig's List find that I got for $50. It's a 1930's piece that had been sitting in a basement for 20 years. I was excited to transform it's "good bones" into a beautiful dining room piece.
The sideboard is functioning as our bar table.
This simple transformation has taken my dining room out of the 1980's, and using crisp, clean, whites has added cottage charm, and a modern, yet timeless look. My entire dining set only cost me $50 plus $20 in paint supplies.
I used Valspar's Honeymilk, Minwax Dark Walnut stain, & Polycrylic Satin finish.
