It Was A Steal Of A Deal...

We are continuing this week of furniture flips with a gorgeous dining room table and chairs makeover from Che at Juxtaposition.  (Isn't that an AWESOME Name - Juxtaposition?)  

Che was combining households with her guy and found herself needing to furnish a dining room.  She had her heart set on a French Provincial style set but had kind of given up hope of finding one in her area.  Until...she finally did.

She found a lovely set that needed some TLC from a sweet older lady who only used it on Sundays.  (<That part is creative license...stay with me.)  

Here's a picture of one of the six chairs (YES, 6 chairs! Mine only has four and mine came from a sweet older lady, too!  What a rip-off!  GRANDMA!)  

Che refers to them as the "ugly chairs" and they were a bit outdated but they were a steal!  THE ENTIRE SET WAS ONLY $60!  This set came with 3 extra leaves for the table, too!  Lucky duck Che!

She set to work on them.  She used homemade chalk paint, some glaze, and pretty fabric.

Here is the spectacular after of her new to them dining room set...

There's nothing ugly about that anymore!  

For ALL of the details and even more before/during/after pictures, head on over for a visit with Che at Juxtaposition.

Thanks Che for sharing your awesome furniture flip!
