As I alluded to in a previous post my parents generously offered us their old kitchen table this weekend. It had been sitting in their garage and my Dad was using it as a workbench. It’s lovely and it really takes things up a notch decorating-wise. Just sitting at it feels good, but, the wood stain is a bit dark for our space and doesn’t match our kitchen cabinets or other furniture. We have an open floor plan and there is no space separation between the kitchen, dining area or living room so it is definitely a noticeable difference.
The chairs pictured here are falling apart and are actually going to be replaced soon, hopefully for the long haul, with the West Elm set that we recently purchased but are on back order until April. However, the color we chose in the chairs (and love) is “acorn” So, what to do? Paint the table? Strip it and try to stain it lighter? Swap out the chairs for white? By the way, the table (though it looks like a vintage farm house style) is just from World Market and not an antique or heirloom.
Any suggestions? I would love to hear your thoughts!
