Not sure what is needed to redo a dining room table? Checkout our material list above.


Step # 3 – Clean and prep furniture

Wipe down dining room table and chairs with a lint free rag. (If the furniture is dirty, you can use a solution of : water, soap and a bit of vinegar). Be sure to allow your furniture to dry completely, before painting.


Step # 4Remove cushion from chair

Turn the chairs over and remove screws that fasten the seats.


Step # 5 – Paint chairs

This is where NOT being an expert painter works! Chalk paint works well even if you’re a beginner. Insider trick: as you paint, use a soft lint free damp cloth to clean up as you go along. Allow 2- 4 hours for your chairs to dry completely.


Step # 6 – Re-upholstery chairs.

To utilize time wisely, we like to tackle our cushion seats while we wait for the chairs to dry. The easiest way to re-upholster a chair cushion is to lay the fabric down and put the cushion on top. You can measure by pulling a piece of the fabric over the cushion to see where it falls and then cut. Be sure to straighten your fabric and cut to line up with your design pattern. Take your staple gun and staple the fabric to the cushion.


Step # 7 – Examine your finish re-upholster

This is what the finish product looks like. It doesn’t have to be neat, remember the bottom will be screwed down to the chair, so it won’t be visible. The picture to the right is the finished side which will be visible. At this point, you’ve earned some brownie points, so take a break or have a snack:)


Step # 8 – Prep table and select paint color.

You can use steps 4 and 5 above to clean and remove table legs.

For this table we used our “What Not To Renovate Supreme Chalk Paint Collection”.

The color we selected for the table top is – WNTR Supreme Chalk Paint Collection “Waterfall finish”.

The color we used for the table legs is – WNTR Supreme Chalk Paint Collection “Angel White”

The color we used for the table edge is – WNTR Supreme Chalk Paint Collection “Shimmering Silver”
