And here is her post about her beautiful dining room table transformation:

I DID IT!!! I finally finished my table. BAD news, it only took me two months : GOOD news I DONT CARE, IT’S DONE!! Josh and I ate our first meal [of course Sushi] on it the other night. We were so giddy & happy the whole time we were eating:) Okay ENOUGH blabber, on to the REDO:

I’m a dork & forgot to snap a pic of the my table before, this table is almost EXACTLY like the one I have :

The Sanded Chair [I have FIVE] :

The Primed Chair :

The Primed Table :


The first coat on the table :


I wanted to do something a little different on the legs & chairs. I took black paint and scrubbed it down on the legs… Here’s the Before :

The After : [with flash]
[how it really looks]

Next, I wanted to be even more drastic & different so I started nailing upholstery nails around the table….yep all 150+ of them, BY HAND!




SO, Here’s the big FINALE :




I’m ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE with my table! BIG THANKS to my husband for his AWESOME support.


Great job Katie! Your table looks gorgeous and your dining room is so pretty! I love it!
