When I saw this set up on craigslist I knew I had to have it. The awesome chunkiness of the table base and chairs is so attractive. I knew the set would look spectacular with a little face life. I painted the chairs and table base in a black enamel, and sanded, stained and sealed the table top to get the most out of the outstanding wood grain. As usual, I forgot to take 'before' pictures, but I think the 'after' result speaks for itself.
