Trestle Table and Chairs



This sweet little trestle table and set of four chairs came by way of a yard sale. I love it when you find a table and chairs all together!





There really was not a thing wrong with them other than the fact that they were just very brown. I am not particularly a fan of oak and maybe they matched just a bit too much.


I thought the chairs were especially sweet!


So I kept it really simle and just painted the table in a creamy shade of homemade chalk paint and I just cleaned up the chairs.


I love it when a table and chairs relate, but don't necessarily match.


It would have worked just as well the other way around - painting the chairs and keeping the table natural wood.


The table got a light distressing ...


and a coat of wax for durability.


This set would be perfect in a cottage kitchen or
maybe on a screened porch for summer dining!

Cute and a different twist. People usually paint the chairs. I love the lines of the chairs. xo Diana

I totally agree that the brown needed to be broken up a bit. Great makeover!
