Vintage Pecan Dining Table Set

I picked this dining table set up a couple weeks ago. I knew it would turn out beautiful It was in great condition and just needed a new look. I painted the chairs and the table frame a black gloss and then re-did the table top is a richer warmer brown. This was a fun set to work on because it was all just cosmetic work, not a lot of maintenance required. I love the clean lines of the set, and the mid century modern style of the chairs. It would look as good in a 19th century farmhouse as in a modern city loft. It's a flexible table too- with six chairs and an internal leaf, it can go from regular to dinner party in a matter of moments. This one's for sale and up on craigslist, so just let me know if you're interested!

I have to say, though the result is satisfying, painting windsor chairs has to be the most tedious thing in the world. And I was covered with black paint for days.

I like the way the top overhangs the frame when the leaf is open. It reminds me of antique shaker farm tables.
