before and after: chevron dining table

this little table and mismatching chairs came from our local thrift store, for about $20.

before and after: chevron dining table

after being completely inspired by laurie’s herringbone wall design, i decided to go for it!  i used her same technique, but spray painted the table with gold paint before i taped off the design in beige and khaki.  i topped it off with a 3 coats of protective enamel, stained the legs cherry to match the chairs, and recovered the seats in an ivory and green leaf print.

trust me, i know our carpet it terribly ugly and we have doors everywhere, but hey, i’m working with it!  we’ll only be here until april, so the tacky stays.

a thrifted mirror in the center used as a tray for the essentials and a pretty fall bouquet for the centerpiece.

  • That table looks amazing! Fantastic job! The chairs are very sweet too. Unfortunately, I think the dog kind of steals the spotlight :)

  • I love this! It’s really creative and not a makeover you see every day. Thanks for posting it!!!

  • Wow you just made my day, not only do I LOVE what you did to your dining table, so creative, I saw a glimpse of the “Grow” print! I can’t believe it made it to Colorado with you:)

  • PS, the gold on the table is such a great touch!
