Antique Table and Chairs in Graphite...

This incredible table and chair set was given to me by my cousins
Jeff and MaryAnn Hamblin.
I'm so grateful for their trust in my abilities to re-create it... it was so much fun!
I decided to paint in ASCP Graphite and only use a dark wax.
The top had a gorgeous grain that I stained first with dark walnut, then a light coat of ebony,
then sealed with polyurethane. 
It turned out beautifully!
The chairs were in desperate need of new padding and upholstery...
The new owners bought it before that was done so they chose this cute mustard yellow fabric.
I love it! The contrast of the yellow and graphite is stunning!
Love, love, LOVE those legs!
I had such fun transforming it...
I hope it provides a beautiful spot for countless family meals to come!


  1. We must think alike. I just got two chairs exactly like yours and am going to paint them grey. I like leaving the table top wood, I think I will do that too. Happy 4th!
