Table + Chairs Upcycle: Before Photos {Post 1 of 7}

Chair+Table2This seven post series was inspired by a table and chairs that I drooled over at Slumberland Furniture for nearly seven months. I decided to go for an table and chairs “upcycle” with what I already had at home. Working with this table and chairs was a labor of love, but the total cost was less than $100. I love the finished product. This was only my second “upcycle” experience! Anyone can do this. I’m a beginner, too. The finished table now resides in my sewing and writing studio. One chair sits by my sewing machine, another at my computer.

The table and chairs were in good condition, although the seat cushions were stained. The varnish had been chipped off of the legs and edge of the table, too.

Upscycling really trendy right now. So, I am jumping on the bandwagon with this project! The following posts will show step-by-step my process for fixin’ up this table and chairs.
