My house has a cute little dining area perfect for a breakfast table, I knew I wanted to put a pedestal table there but the one I liked was over $500 at Rooms To Go. I then found this one for $30 on OfferUp.
It was perfect, a little roughed up but nothing some good old sanding and painting won’t fix. I used the following paint and stain for the top of the table.
I used this stain color but we ended up putting around 12 layers of this stuff mainly to cover up scratches, but I loved how dark the color came out after all those layers of stain.
I had a hard time finding inexpensive chairs to go with it, one day while strolling through our local furniture store on the hunt for a mattress my husband spotted the perfect chairs for only $40 a piece. I did not have to paint them the colors matched perfectly. It was meant to be 🙂
