Our Thomasville dining room set was one of the first early investments in our marriage. A hutch , oval table and 6 chairs was purchased for use in our kitchen, as our old home had a large nook area . When we moved to our present home it took its place in the dining room.
Here it is this past December – bittersweet looking back at these photos – who’d have known that less than two weeks later my husband would be coming home from work, no longer employed – after 32 long years?
The set needs to be updated- I hate the honey oak, and want to paint it black, lightly distressing the edges. My quandary is this – as much as I love painting, I hate painting! I don’t look forward to painting 6 chairs, a table with 2 leaves, and a china cabinet with a bunch of glass panels to tape off.
The Caromal Colours Reclaim Licorice (black) is so tempting – quick, easy, and covers like tar …. I tried it on a chair ….
(Like those piles of Legos on the table? Need to get those listed on eBay…. )
But, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Caromal Colours Texture Basecoat finishes too. Here the Peppercorn (black)-
Even though the Texture Basecoat will take a little more effort than the easier Reclaim, I’m not going to compromise – I love the TB paints for furniture finishes. The paints make it easy to create a soft, kicked back, custom looking finish with substance. My dining room set has oak grain – and the sampling of Reclaim Licorice did not cover the existing grain pattern whereas the TB paint will hide the grain – in my case I’d prefer the grain be gone.
So – wish me well – no clue when I’ll find the time, but you’ll be the first to see the updates!
