Meghan inherited a hand-me-down dining set for her new home. While the table got a classic twist, the chairs now bring the wow factor:

From Meghan:

Having bought a new house, money was on the tighter side when it came to buying brand new furniture. My mother-in-law was nice enough to give my husband and I her old kitchen table. When I saw it, I knew I wanted to paint the chairs and redo the table.

To start my makeover, I sanded and stained the top of the table in a walnut finish. I painted the pedestal white. To really pop out the table, I painted the chairs a chartreuse color. This color was a bit bold, but I think it works perfectly in my kitchen!

Thank you Meghan!
