Fun Times with Emmy!!

A few months ago Emmy bought a dining set on a local on-line auction site.  It was a great set but had seen better days so,  she decided to paint the chairs and bottom of the table and stain the top.  Last weekend using her handy new paint sprayer we primed and painted 2 coats of semi gloss on 6 chairs and the legs.  We did it all in one day which I think was amazing!!!!  I brought the table top home and stripped, stained and finished the top.  Everything came out great!!   Check out the pictures below and then head over to Progression of a Home Buyer, Emmy's Blog for more pictures.

Here are the before pictures:

Here are some in progress pictures:

And here is the finished product!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial Day!!


  1. Gretchen what a beautiful transformation! Can you please tell me what color stain you used and who it's by?
