I posted about this set
and it’s paint process here -> Dining Table and Chairs Transformation
I loved painting this Jacobean set, everything came together so nicely. It recently sold and when I get a chance I will do my next dining room set (a smaller Duncan Phyfe) in a similar combo. Similar? Why not exact?
Well, the customer that fell in love with the table and chairs was drawn to the sideboard as well. I finished the sideboard in Ce Ce Vintage White like the table, but I changed it up a little and sealed it with Ce Ce Clear Wax tinted with gray pigment to age it. I also painted the top a different color, layering a custom mix (Vintage Chestnut + SpringHill Green 50/50) over Pittsburgh Gray…
She was willing to make an offer on the whole set, but asked if I could repaint the table top to match the brown finish on the sideboard. Of course I said yes!
Ahhhhhh I L O V E IT!
For sure, next table top will be brown just like this. I started with a layer of Pittsburgh Gray, over top I brushed a custom mix (50% Virginia Chestnut and Spring Hill Green), light sanded, topcoated, then gave it a coat of dark brown gel stain. It’s in the store for another couple weeks until the client can move it to her new room, if you’re local come check it out – maybe it will nudge you to repaint your own table and chairs!
