The Cedar Park table and chairs have met their match. Hello, Gadora! Here’s a photo of the dining table ~ BEFORE. Check out other BEFORE photos in Gadora’s previous post: Shabby Chic off Cedar Creek.
And the chairs…
AFTER: 6 chairs, sans seats. 1 drop leaf table, with a center leaf. 4 sheets of sandpaper (each cut into four) and 1 fabulous Bosch power sander. A quart of premium taupe paint. A light sanding. A half gallon of Valspar bright white. A quart of polyurethane. Another sanding. Dry. Dry, paint dry.

And presto! A new dining set. They’ll sit in Cedar Park, a suburb just outside of Austin, in a delightful cottage-inspired interior. The table-top was distressed in parallel lines across the length of the table, giving its stance a wider appearance. The stripes also mimic wooden slats that “might” have constructed the table.

And the legs. Giving the set a taupe undercoat gives it brilliant detail, as if layers of life were applied over the years, and revealed upon its latest incarnation.
Gadora took a few minutes to scope out some fabric ideas for the seats. Finding an Austin artist ScarletFig, Gadora suggests something graphic in the color palette of the chairs new home…

Another fabulous option to bring out the tables’ wood underneath, Amy Butler’s brilliant patterns. Love the Dream Poppies!
We are promised a photo of the completed seats when they are chosen!
