Some projects take time...
I do have to admit that I'm a starter. In my studio there's nothing I LOVE more than starting a new project - the anticipation and initial excitement is what I love the most. Smaller projects are really what I enjoy the most.
So... needless to say, our dining room suite has been a bit of a challenge.
Now for those of you who follow me closely, you will know that this has been dragging on way too long. I think I started it around 4 or 5 months ago (she says with embarrassment), but I am getting there. It's almost done now with just the final chair seats to be covered.
With this project I decided to polyurethane the chairs and the table top, to provide extra protection.
Here's what I did:
1. Painted using a textured painting technique.
2. Finished the chairs with a dry brushing effect using White.
3. Applied white wax to the table legs and base.
4. Polyurethaned the table top and chairs for added protection.

Love the dining suite! Was wondering, where did you get the material for the chairs!? My first job is our dining room to make over :)

Thank you. I got this fabric at Harvey Furnishings in Tauranga, however it was a good year or more ago. Enjoy your first make over!
