Refinished French Table with 4 chairs and a Bench

I am so excited to show you this beautiful refinished French table.  This table was a labor of love to say the least.
When I first picked up this table from a thrift store it was cover in epoxy.  It looked like someone had tried to pour it over the table top and unfortunately it didn’t go as planned.  This table was so beautiful I bought it anyway hoping to bring it back to life.
After many hours and a lot of paint stripper I got every last bit of the epoxy off and managed to save the top!  I am so glad it work, as you can see this table is beautiful!  I love the legs and the fun curves!
I added this darling bench to this table for added seating.  Would you guess this bench used to be a coffee table?  It was a little low for seating so I added some extra height under the wood top making it the perfect bench!
These captain chairs are one of my favorites!  The pleated skirt is so cute, and is also a great option for upholstered seats.  If someone spills on them just untie them, hand wash them and you will have new clean chairs!  Mine have worked awesome with my kids!


And I love these chairs, they are similar to the captain chairs but just enough different to add that custom feel.


I added these rose appliqués to all 4 legs to add some character!



And of course what is a beautiful table with out fresh flowers?!

    food that doesn’t need to be kept cold. By using these, your little boys and girls will be afforded more room to move about.

    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things
    out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but
    I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
