This table had seen better days when I was tasked with restoring it. After much sanding and bleaching, the stain on the bottom shelf was lightened, but could not be permanently removed. As the client didn’t want to replace the veneer from the shelf, we masked it as best we could with a slightly darker stain and satin finish.
I picked up this dining set from a local painter for a fantastic deal. The table top was stained and scratched, the leather on the chairs was cracking, and it definitely needed a face-lift. I sanded and stained the table top, reupholstered the chairs, and painted the table base and chairs. I gave it a chippy look using light grey chalk paint, but then glazed the painted surfaces with an antiquing glaze to give them a more aged look.
