Here is my " new" breakfast nook table. I painted a very ugly dated set that was left behind by the previous owners of my house. (See below)
I made my own chalky type paint with plaster of Paris, water and latex paint.
Once I painted two coats then I stenciled the backs and finished with two coats of min wax.
I love this table now and it only cost me $13.00 in paint. Yahoo!!!!
