Dining Room Reveal- French Provincial Dining Set Makeover

Finally the moment has arrived when I can finally reveal the french provincial dining table and six cane chairs that Mr. Wilson worked so hard to finish!   Since we are hosting Christmas dinner this year, I rushed to sew the skirts for the chairs and decided that for the sake of time, I would just reupholster the arm chairs in a gray linen fabric I found at Joannes.  I actually like the contrast of the gray fabric on the arm chairs, it makes the set a little unique and not so matchy-matchy.

Here is a view of the back of the chair skirts I sewed from drop-cloths.  If you remember from this post, I used Miss Mustard seeds amazing tutorial on how to sew these little babies and I think it really dresses the chairs up!

I used these drop cloths that I ordered from Amazon, which I bleached to give them a lighter look.  The chairs were sanded down and painted in Old White chalk paint by Annie Sloan.

I whitewashed the table top and painted the legs and base in Annie Sloan’s French Linen Chalk Paint, you can read about this transformation more in this post.

The following photos show how I set the table for Christmas, which is quickly approaching.  The little trees I found at the Target dollar bin section for $3 each.

The table runner and little gold candle holders are from Homegoods.

A simple and inexpensive Christmas centerpiece is a pretty bowl or tray filled with sparkly ornaments.  I received the glass bowl as a wedding gift and the large silver ball in the middle is from the Christmas Tree Shop.

This table is ready for a feast, now I just have to figure out what to cook!
