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
