Dining Room Makeover

My dining table is finished and I love it!

In the end it cost me $125 for the whole setting...

I bought it for $105 off ebay, used some paint my dad gave me for the chairs and legs, bought a pot of stain $15, some turps and brushes $5. I couldn't be happier!

Here's some befores so you can see why I'm so excited!

When we first moved in (December '09)
The table was my parents which they received as a wedding gift over 20 years ago...we restained it (It's now our office desk). The stools were free from Bayswiss!

Then we hung that beautiful mirror - 20kg!Then painted the walls...
And here's the finished product! I love the photo collage...Hopefully it will grow as our family does :)

So here's all the bits & pieces:

Walls - Taubmans "Gravelstone", Trims etc. - Dulux "Antique White USA", Dining chairs & table legs - Taubmans "Pebble Bay", Stain - Wattyl Stain & Varnish "Walnut"

A huge thankyou to Geoff who ran down to Sydney to pick up the table and to Bren who spent so long sanding that top! THANKYOU!
