Flea Market Table Makeover Revealed~ I need your opinion!

posted in: Cottage Decorating | 16

Hi Folks,
You may remember last week I posted a picture of a table I bought for $25 at a local thrift shop. Well, the table is finished and I love it! Here’s some eye candy just for you….

OK. Here is my dilema. I am tired of the red and am now ready to repaint my chairs and can’t decide on a color. I saw a picture of chairs that were painted aqua over red and when distressed, the red showed through. I loved them but not sure how they would look against the table. My second choice is satin black. Its classic and timeless.
What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!

    What a great find. I love the table, and it looks wonderful with it's new finish. Great chairs and bench too. Beautiful job. Hugs, Marty

    Great find and you did a nice job of transforming it! I love the idea of turquoise over red. It's just paint, so if you don't like it, you can repaint, right?

    WOW, I'm impressed. I have a similar table that I want to restain the top. You've given me inspiration. For your chairs how about white over the red and shabby chic them so the red shows through a little. Great job!

    Hi Lisa! Oh, I love your table and it turned out so pretty! How about painting your chairs white, dressing and letting some red show through and put down dome pretty pillows on the seats. Can't wait to see what you do.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

    Looove your table remake, it looks fabulous! I have to say I'm with Debbie & Sheila, for myself I paint everything white, so I'd go with that over the red! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

    I would say white or black however it depends on if the aqua would go well with the rest of your kitchen! The table looks awesome! Stopping by from Met Monday!!

    I love the table, and I like it with the red chairs. But if you're tired of it, then like others have said… it's just paint! (and some time)

    Your table looks fantastic. I'm thinking of doing the same thing with mine so I was curious to see what it looked like. I have black chairs and was wondering if that would work with a white table base and wood top. I'd love to find some inspiration photos with the black chairs.

    Hello Lisa,
    WOw, do we have a lot in common-or same interests… Im so glad to of met you and so glad you live far away- You would be such competition..
    I just did a rocking horse- I have a few chandleirs in my garage waiting for some love, LOVE love chairs- and my dining room table is exactly like that, i found it dark oak, painted it black-didnt like it then painted it white-and did the top in stain.. Literally exactly like that..
    JUST adore your love for frill fun…
    Oh yeah i wanted to do Tea parties in my shoppe for little girls.. DId one for 14 8 year olds and now not so sure…

    Lisa this is so beautiful! The table looks completely different — you did a wonderful job! Love that red, too!

  11. Cathy @ The Far Fifty

    I love the red! But if you're ready for a change I think aqua would look great! Love the table, great job!

  12. Minky {moo}

    Oh I think the aqua with red showing through ( and maybe a little brown aging over the aqua so it doesn't look too new) would look AMAZING! in fact, I want to do that…to something.

    When I got to your bottom picture I went, "OOOOOOOH! I love the table with that red!! So then when I read what you said about red I thought, :-(.
    BUT with that being said. I love all things red. I love all things aqua. I agree that the aqua over red with some antiquing would be splendid. OR you could paint your red walls a softer color and keep the pop of red in your chairs. No matter what, the table is the bomb! Great job!! Lori L
