DIY Thursday: Revamped Dining Table

Revamped Dining Table

Now you didn't think that I would paint my chairs and leave my table to wither in their sunshine did you???
Well we (my hubby & I) finally got it done.  And yes, sometimes a Talented Terrace Girl does need her man by her side to help her out with some projects.

So, here is the before:

Not bad, but so not what I want in my kitchen.  Plus the top was in major need of some TLC.  The varnish was flaking off and it was disgusting!

So, like I said before, I got this fabulous idea from Brooke at All Things Thrifty.  She really is amazing.  I would LOVE to have her come and redo my house!
She also has a great tutorial for this.  She is the queen of painting furniture.

we borrowed my husband's parents paint sprayer.  That this is amazing, it is also super expensive!
But it made our job a million times easier!!!
Here's Matt spraying away.  We just used regular white latex semi-glass paint.

Here it is drying in the sweet April sunshine!

While cleaning out the paint sprayer Matt accidentally sprayed himself in the face.  The kids and I laughed so hard, and he was such a good sport =)

Here is the finished product:

I am SO in love!!!

My sis-in-law kindly told me it was time to get rid of the paneled wall.  I am in agreement...but am lacking fabulous ideas.  Do I texture it, just paint over it?  And what colors????  Any suggestions???
