Dining Room Makeover

We just moved into our condo last April. I have had the same dining room furniture for nearly 10 years. A round, glass, 4 seater table. It was perfect. We don’t entertain much and it was mostly a mail collector.

When I found out I was pregnant in January, I knew that I eventually wanted to get a wooden table so our new baby could enjoy it some day as well.

I posted the old table on Facebook about 3 weeks ago and someone was immediately interested!

Just like that it was sold! $150 in our pockets, plus $100 I won from a scratch off… I wanted to put that towards our new table and chairs.

I really had high hopes of finding something I could give a makeover. I didn’t search nearly as hard as I could have. After all, I thought I was going back to work and wouldn’t have time.

So I went on amazon and found these BEAUTIFUL chairs! They had great reviews and the price was absolutely right!


I searched all over for a wooden dining room table that I could stain. I remembered that we got Mackenzie’s dresser from ikea and stained it, maybe they had a table I could do the same to?!

I found the Ingo table. Solid, pine, naked and I could stain it!

I bought my favorite odorless stain from Old Barn Milk Paint, which is a company I found on Instagram!

I’m obsessed with how it turned out! It was so easy and I love the look and feel it gives our dining room and our home!

Here’s the finished look:

Table – ikea Ingo table

Chairs – amazon – Merax fabric chairs 2 pack

Stain – old barn milk paint – weathered

Buffet – Ashley furniture

Tree – Walmart

Christmas decor – Target

Thanks for reading!

See you soon,

Kristina 🖤
