PAINTING RED & BROWN DISTRESSED TABLE & CHAIRS FOR ROBIN'S LAKE HOUSE

Robin is in the middle of remodeling their lake house.  This table and chairs have been in the lake house for many years and was in need of a new coat of paint.  It was that orangey stained oak finish.


She asked me to paint it for their "man cave" and her husband got to choose exactly what he wanted for the new finish.


This is the finish he chose.  Once again, I worked on it in my dining room.
(I'm always willing to move my furniture out for a while.  But, it will be so nice to see my dining room furniture, again.)


After priming, I painted a base coat of brown and then the red on the flat surfaces.  Then, I stained and sealed everything.  I'm getting ready to put a coat of wax on the table top and chair seats, just to give it a little more protection from the heavy wear and tear of a fun lake house.  And, I know this one is!
I'm eager for them to come see their new furniture.
Thank you, Robin!!

  5. Great transformation - very "man-cave-ish"! The red contrasts nicely with the wood.

    1. Yes, the colors worked really well, together. I put a stain on the red and it blended even better with the brown parts.

    1. Thanks! They sent me a photo of this set in their lake house and it looked so nice with their new wall color. The walls were a browny yellow color.

  8. We've thought about doing something like this for our kitchen table & chairs, they're getting pretty beaten up. Thanks for the inspiration. Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

    1. To work over painted furniture, I always use gel stains. Any paint store will have them and they're so easy to work with. They make your furniture look like it's been stained, not painted.
