Heidi's Table Transformation {guest post}

Carissa from Carissa Miss updated this table with Vanilla Frosting to modernize Heidi's dining room space. We love the new clean, fresh look!

One of my favorite parts about being a designer is seeing the projects through until the end. Heidi contacted me about helping her re-finish her ancient dining table. She just moved into a brand new house and the old table wasn't doing the room justice.

Heidi's table looked like it was wanting to be mid-century modern, but didn't quite make it. I thought the two-toned white/wood would be a nod to the table's roots.

I like to think I made the decision for the table and it's not in that in-between stage anymore. It's decidedly traditional!

I painted it with my Home Right Finish Max Pro in Country Chic's Vanilla Frosting, roughed up the edges and gave it a polyurethane top coat.

I think this is my first distressed project I've yet to do with the chalk-based paint! Just goes to show how versatile and transitional this paint is.

Those puke-pink chairs just weren't doing it for me and I couldn't wait to re-upholster them.

Navy is definitely my go-to color right now and I knew it would look great it on these chairs in THIS print.

Upholstering them was a cinch--we were able to bust them out in less than an hour! The 18-Volt ONE+ AirStrike 18GA Cordless Narrow Crown Stapler is the bom.dot.com. Seriously though, I love that I get a professional job done without the bulk of the air compressor. No, really. I upholstered 2 valences and these 4 chairs this weekend all on ONE battery charge. And my DIY Upholstered Bed? Yep. All on one battery charge too!

The best part? This little makeover cost about $20 for the fabric to recover the chairs.

Soooo doable. Please, don't live with those less-than-stellar cushions anymore. For $5 a chair it is in EVERYONE'S budget. And just because I love that white on wood...
