Dining Room Paint

Honey Man and I painted our dining room set just a few weeks back. This set my mom gave to me and got for free from a dear friend, who's mother was wanting to get rid of some furniture. At that time I was only 16 but my mom knew I would be needing a dining room set when I got older and I am so glad she stored this for me, such a wise and sweet mama I have :) And  a sweet daddy for storing it all these years. I still have to get the breakfast buffet which is too large for our house right now.
This set was in very nice condition just needed to be stripped and stained which would cost a small fortune which we are not quite ready to pay yet. So late one evening I had just finished painting a dresser with this black flat paint and I thought, why don't I paint the dining room furniture!! So Honey Man and I stayed up way past our bed time to get it painted while the babies slept. The next day we did a second coat and then later finished with a little bit of distressing.
The paint has freshened up the dinning room
and changed the whole feeling of this part of the house.

Amount for expenses:
paint $7.00
Brushes $ 3.00
Total $10.00
