Upcycled dining table and chairs

This tabletop was sanded back to its original colour and the rounded edges were made square to create a modern look.

The project


This table had rounded edges and I wanted to square the edges and change the colour. The edges were routed and a border was added. I sanded the table back to raw wood and applied three coats of polyurethane to the top and painted the legs white. I used one coat of primer, four coats of white paint and two coats of polyurethane for the chairs. Really happy with how it turned out.
