Thrifted Table and Chair Makeover

A few months ago, we purchased a solid wood drop-leaf table and 2 chairs for $20. The size, shape, and price were perfect and what we had been looking for in the breakfast area. And although the table did need a little bit of work, for $20, we didn't mind.

The two chairs that came with it were originally a lighter wood tone. It didn't match the finish on the table and there were some paint spots on the seat. After a light sanding, I painted them with some left over chalkboard paint (the same we used for the play room). 

Here it is today:

Our kids like to eat their breakfast or snack in this little spot. The view out the window isn't too bad either. Occasionally, we have seen deer in our backyard which the kids LOVE to watch while they are eating.

We also decided to add these rubber white "feet" to the chairs to protect the floors. It also makes it harder for a certain little person in our house to move them around all over the place scratching up the floors. ;)

Silly faces!!

I'm finding more and more that I'm such a sucker for wood tones paired with gray and black. There's just something about that combo together that I love! 
Because of this, I also added some wood trim around our chalkboard calendar (pictured above), because again, I wanted to add more wood tones to this space. 
We love how everything came together in this little space.
