Although I truly love the whites of Shabby Chic, it just does not lend
well with our style of life. What feels so comfortable to me and what I keep gravitating
toward are the warm and rich colors that are Old World and what I think, European.
The table lived as a misfit for the past 3+ years so we finally
brought her up to par to fit the rest of the house.
Okay, as luck would have it, I was on Pinterest looking at my feed and
there it was, in raw, original color (other than the seats).
Yeah, it looked like this at one time. The seats were (they still exist under the new fabric)
covered in a beige and cream pinstripe.
I think I painted the base and chairs black first then went to this:
Then the move and now this:
Now that the top is a rich chocolate glaze, we can see all the scratches in the glass that were somewhat invisible with the white top. I doubt we will replace it but I surely do not want to have it off. We have yet to find a good, reliable and affordable glazier.
One thing I do love so very much about the dark top is a new photographing platform!
The light is amazing in the dining room with the wall of windows facing North.
I'm glad to have that checked off the list. School starts on Monday and my next project is to finish caulking and painting baseboards and crown. Yeah, it's been a while of in-completion.
Sometimes, that's how we roll.
See ya soon!
