Some things have good bones. When my mom offered up her old table and chairs, I knew it was the right move. Solid wood. No debt. High-potential furniture.
I definitely had a Pottery Barn farm table in a dark color in mind, so this blonde oak with leafy patterned seat covers really drove me crazy, until...
A little houndstooth totally updated my dining room table and chairs from being 90s blah to a classic. This is the best part- the fabric was on clearance at Hobby Lobby, so I bought the last 4 yards for $7!
I might still get around to painting the table black since it is really worn, but don't forget I'm also in the middle of a Bedroom DIY. I plan on taking an 80s dresser of the WORST kind to boho chic. Believe it or not! Don't give up on the potential of your hand-me-downs!
Speaking of makeovers... my blog design is getting an overhaul. I can't wait to reveal the new blog!
