Dining Room Set Makeover Part 5

Well, this series took long enough. I’ve actually had the painting done for quiet a while now but I had to put the video together and then there were other posts that I got caught up in, so that’s that. But this is the last instalment (at least for painting). I have two separate posts coming for the upholstery (which is currently done! Woohoo!) and I couldn’t be prouder of how it turned out!

Here’s a hint at what the upholstery looks like!

In this video, I put the Tough Coat (not top coat, as I kept calling it. Nail polish on the brain) on the table top and gave some insight into the process and the final outcome. Aside from reupholstering the chairs, it’s done done done. It seems like it took longer than it actually took. When factoring in the actual amount of time, it wasn’t that bad. Probably about two and a half hours for the first coat on the chairs, the same for the second coat on the chairs and the first coat on the table base, thirty minutes for the first coat on the table top and one hour for the second coat on the base and the second coat on the table top. That makes a grand total of about six and a half hours. Not bad especially considering how AMAZING the table looks. The outcome is definitely a good return on the investment of time I put into it. If you’re interested in the price breakdown, I will list everything in the final post for the set, after the reupholstering is done.


Overall, as I’ve said over and over again, I love the way this has turned out. I was a little frustrated with this last part as I was given some conflicting information, which I go into more detail in the above video.

Please, please, please let me know if you have ANY questions. I know how overwhelming it can seem and it is a bit of a daunting task if you haven’t done anything along these lines before so feel free to ask me anything and good luck!
