Dining Table Sold!

I recently moved some of my pieces for sale into a new space which just opened on November 1st.  I just got a text from them that my dining table has already sold, only 5 days after opening.  I am so excited!  I displayed the table with the chairs not made-over, to give the buyer an option of painted (for a price of course!) or "as is". That was actually the store owner's idea and I'm glad I listened.   They took the chairs "as is", which is great since I'm not even home to paint them right now.  If you've been reading my blog at all lately, you know that I am currently on the road for my work until December 9th.  I've been itching to get back home and paint some more pieces as it is.  Now I really can't wait!  I've got to hit the road running with my projects when I get home.

I already posted these pictures on the original reveal here where you can see the before and after.  Anyway here's the table!

I never did take pictures of the chairs, but I didn't do much with them anyway.  I took off the ugly green material that was covered in cat hair from the seats.  Then after finally getting that off by removing a gazillion staples, I discovered a kind of funky gold and muted green diamond patterned material underneath.  The material actually looked great with the table!  The dark chairs were a nice contrast as well.  I could kick myself for not taking a picture of the whole set together!  Oh well, live and learn.

Thanks for visiting!
