After I painted over the navy blue walls in my dining room to neutralize, I was surprisingly sad. I didn’t know how emotionally tied I was to my blues. So, I had a brainstorm! I’ll paint the dining room furniture blue!!
Here’s the before:
The table and chairs were hand-me-downs. The burgundy armchairs and china hutch were Craigslist buys. I love a good deal! All were lovingly used A LOT!
I took the doors off the hutch, replaced the glass shelves with wood, replaced the awful gold foiled wallpaper in the back of the hutch to beadboard wallpaper I found at Lowes. Whoever invented this wonderful thing has got my vote!!! I’M LOVIN’ IT!!!
I sanded each piece with 200 grit sandpaper, painted two coats of Valspar Precious Sapphire paint, then polyurethaned with three coats. I felt like I had a paintbrush stuck to my hand even when I wasn’t painting anymore! Pouty face. But I’m loving my blues!!
