Well let me start by saying that this was given to us by some friends who had recently ordered them a new dining set. It was pretty beat up when we got it, but from a distance you couldn’t really tell. My husband and I used it for about a year before I decided to do something about it. (Sorry I forgot to get a complete before picture of the table.) In the before picture of the chair, you can really see all the scratches that it had.
So I finally decided to make the best of it and refinish it. I figured that the scratches would now only add beauty to it. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Aubusson Blue, and then waxed it, sanded it, and then did one final coat of wax. Here is the final result….
I will leave you with one closing thought….
