Painted table and dip dye legs…

I was able to get the table painted this weekend! I did go with Linen White; on almost the entire thing… I thought I would have a little fun and do a “dip-dye” treatment on the legs with a dusky grey blue that I mixed from some paint left-overs.
I thought it would be interesting in a subtle way and modernize the vintage table a bit.
 I just painted the very bottom of the legs. I would have taped the lines off, but I was forced to free-hand when I found my kids had been robbing the blue painter’s tape and there was none left.
I love the contrast.
 I also recovered the bench seat in this super-fun fabric I found at Jo-Ann’s.
I thought a bit bold color was perfect for spring and I love the pattern.
 And I love how all of those colors go with something in my house… except the red macaroni necklace from Valentine’s day I just noticed in all of the pictures. Did you spot it?  :)

    Hello,
    I was curious how it will look your table after renovation. I was also curious if these brass “feet” will stay. Very nice choice of a combination of white and gray – blue, especially in this particular place (table legs). The effect is very interesting. Who knows, maybe in my dining room I’ll copy it.

    Your little eating area is gorgeous! I love the way you painted the table legs, very creative! The fabric on the seat cover is very fun!
    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs, Cindy

    I love what you did to the table. Very fresh and modern looking! And the fabric on the bench looks perfect in the dining nook. (red macaroni necklace…ha ha!)

    Wow, fantastic transformation! I’m a big fan of wood in all shades and probably would have left the table plain, never knowing how awesome it would look painted white. I have a bunch of random wood chairs and now I’m thinking of painting them white. :D With color-dipped legs! Beautiful work, Jennifer!

    Great effect…I love it…Now for me..when my son was little, I probably would have taken your idea and painted the bottom portion black..to hide the markings of his shoes…he was always kicking his feet under the table!

    Love the colors of the table legs..go so beautifully with the new fun fabric!

    I found your blog through the latest issue of Artful Blogging. When I read your article I thought to myself, That’s Me. I’m 42 years old and live in the burbs outside of Chicago. I just started a blog and now have you as another inspiration that I can get there.

    Love how subtle the painted legs are-beautiful!

    Also, love the fabric on your bench…where did you find that? Looks fantastic!

    Would you be able to share what method you used for your table? I have almost this exact table and it is in desperate need of a paint job. I love this idea but was wondering if you sanded and primed and then painted or what you did.

    I’d love to know how you prepped and painted the table, too. Since it likely had a high gloss finish, did you sand the whole thing (and how did you get in the little channels in the legs?) or did you use a liquid to make sure the paint would adhere? I see “Lilies of the Field” would love to know, too. My email is

    Love your painted table, Jenn! The colors you chose are just perfect. My daughter has a drop-leaf, similar to yours, and she is planning to paint it. I pinned yours, as she is trying to get some ideas and inspiration.

    That seat fabric is so 1960s! It looks great on your bench. I’m intrigued by the chandelier, too. Have you done a post on it?
    The table is so much like the mahogany finished table I grew up with that my heart won’t let me like it painted, but i admire your creativity.
    Your style is clean and neat and I like that, though no way i could live that way myself. I still can’t remember to take my gardening shoes off before entering the house!!!! Now, girl, that’s ha-a-a-d!!!

    Awesome room! What interior paint color and paint brand did you use for the wall the mirror is on?
    Thank you!
