Extreme Makeover: Dining Edition

I purchased this buffet and dining table off of the KSL classified ads for $340. It was in great condition but I did not care for the knotty pine look it had.

With an investment of $90 for paint, polyacrylic and fabric my table and buffet set now look heavenly. I love all things white. You probably noticed. You are also probably thinking I must be crazy to coat my house in white. I most likely am.




I would like to give a special thanks to my husband for allowing me to use this wonderful toile fabric on my chairs. I have a deep love for toile. My husband does not. However, being the manly man that he is he let me use it.

You really do love white!!!
I think they turned out great.
What's the explanation with the dishes on the wall? Are they old great grandparents wedding gifts and those are the only ones left over?
Is there a cool story behind them?

You are brave. I hate the white in my house because my kids have destroyed it. It look s beautiful! You did a super good job.

It does look good, and you'll get over the white thing with a few more kids....

It's amazing how the furniture went from looking countryish to shabby chic. I love toile too.

To Melissa-

The plates are there for a rainy day...you never know when there will be a plate shortage. "All is safely gathered in."
