This dining set was in great condition, but you know what? So is that denim jacket you bedazzled in high school. Same principle applies here. You wouldn't wear outdated clothes just because they still fit, so why adorn your rooms in the same manner? If it doesn't suit who you are today, it doesn't deserve space in your home!
And actually, this table was in worse shape than the picture reveals. Lots of water stains and damage and gunk. Which is probably why Meg from Meg and Mum's scored it for $60! Woah. She updated it with a slightly distressed white and a simple gray fabric that really shows of the shape of the chairs instead of hogging all the attention like before. Extra bonus: the little claw feet are more noticeable too!
What's that? You want some more oblong table goodness? Then check out this table that went from weathered oak to weathered oak, which, as anyone can see, is way cooler. Chalk paint strikes again! Get the rundown from Sarah on her blog Modern Country Style
