Carved Dining Table

This is the rest of the story. The dining table to go with the carved chairs.

The table was huge so we decided it would be best if I just painted it in their home. If you are just joining this story, a couple that found my blog commissioned me to paint their dining room set.

I debated on painting the top or not. Once I got there I knew I would leave the top wood. I felt the space needed the warmth of the wood since there were already painted pieces in there.


These were the chairs I painted. I had the clients remove the cushions.

When they were done I delivered them to their house when I was ready to paint the table.


The carving would be highlighted with a dry brush technique and multiple colors.


And there were lots of carving under the table.


As soon as the paint hits it it is transformed.


I used Annie Sloan Paris Gray and Old White with clear and dark wax.


Look how everything stands out now



So much better! Now the cushions have to be covered to make this complete. And did you notice what is up against the wall.

That is my french hutch!


She did a great job styling it. She even added an Edison bulb to the inside light.

Can't wait to get an updated picture with the chairs covered! With the addition of the painted table, the dining room just stood out. Loved it.

Let's connect below!

Hi Deneen,
The chairs and table turned out fabulous. I love it and the top looks gorgeous with the dry brushed bottom. I too use this technique and love how it can transform a piece. Your hutch looks great with everything too.
I bet these folks were so happy to find you through blogland.
What kind of paint did you use?

Have a great week. Happy Designing.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Juanita said...

Gorgeous!! I have a couple of questions... Did you put the gray down first, or the white? Also, Did you wax the base of the table at all?

Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

@juanita grey first and I waxed it!
