Deal of the day Before & After!

Soooo remember that fabulous frenchy table that I had a bargain deal of the deal sale on???  I held onto it forever and just never got around to refreshing it myself.  Well look at this amazing Before & After by Christen Bensten.


Great lines…need a refresh!


Beautiful! Check this out at

I asked her a couple questions so you folks that have a table and chair set at home and are thinking of refreshing them have some inspiration.

What did you paint with?  First coat is Annie Sloan {AS} Old White, second coat is Paris Grey.
What type of finish did you use?  Annie Sloan clear wax & then a coat of her dark wax. Brushed over it with a soft steel wool to remove some of the dark spots. I wanted to maintain that beautiful light blue/Frenchy color.
How many coats of paint did you do?  1 coat of each color.
How long did the project take you?  The chairs took a LONG time because they were ladderback. Maybe a week total for chairs and 4 days for table start to finish. Then the upholstry took a few days to strip off the chairs and staple.

I just LOVE how it turned out!  Email me if you are looking for RAW furniture,


The shoe cables a repent reward near the visible.

    You are tempting me to get this set selling for $50 at a second-hand store in town. Beautiful work!
