Hamptons-style outdoor furniture transformation

I couldn't believe the result which was, I thought, very Hamptons!I couldn't believe the result which was, I thought, very Hamptons!

Continuing to "whitify" my outdoor furniture, the last piece was our 8 seater outdoor table and chairs. As time went on it transformed into something I had not intended but the result was gorgeous. The result was accidentally Hampton and I'm so pleased with it.

 

I started by cleaning and lightly sanding - very lightly! - each piece and then applying three coats of paint. The table I waxed with beeswax and voila...that was it. I think paint was the best invention ever!!!!!:)
