Dining Set: Craigslist + Elbow Grease

I purchased our dining set (pedestal table, leaf, 4 chairs) for $150 off Craigslist prior to our NYC move.  I love the lines and weight of the set and think the chairs are substantial enough to use around the house as additional living room seating, in bedrooms, and as a desk chairs.

We started looking for fabric over a year ago and decided on Dwell’s Studio Bella Porte in the color ‘Brindle.’’  Here are a few examples of completed projects using this fabric I found online:

This past week Clay painted the black dining set white and I reupholstered the seats. Clay painted each piece with 2 coats of oil based primer, 3 coats of paint, and two coats of polycrylic.
