Diningroom Furniture Make over part 1

Happy Easter Everyone!
A few months ago I decided I wanted to give my Diningroom a facelift. I got my Table done and then had to put it on hold because of my Husband's back surgery and complications. Well he's 99% his old self so I'm getting ready to finish the job :-)  Let me start by saying I adore DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint!!!  My poor table was a horrible mess, it's 16 yrs old and had taken quite the beating over the yrs. We're retired so buying a whole new set is out of the question.  I've been a Decorative Painter and Teacher for over 25 yrs and my all time favorite paints to use for that craft have always been DecoArt, of course I'm going to try out their chalk paint :-)  To sum it up, the DecoArt Chalky Finish comes in wonderful colors, it gives excellent coverage, easy to work with and very affordable (especially compared to the overpriced "other" chalk paint).  Here is a photo of my Table so far.
My Hutch/Chinacabinet will be next, just waiting on the rains to stop so I can open the windows to help speed up drying time on it.

I'll post photos as I go along once I start painting again :-)
