Here photographed is a picture of my parents cherry wood dining room furniture that we inherited. At the time our dining room was painted a Ralph Lauren dark brown. The floors were covered with wall to wall builders grade carpet topped with a way too small rug.
I removed all the items from the hutch and completed staining two of the chairs with Bartley gel stain. Each chair has been applied with 10 coats of espresso colored stain. I painted the light fixture with Metallic Master silver paint.
I've completed staining all 6 chairs and reupholstered each with an apple green microfiber fabric. I was thrilled when I realized I could detach the hutch piece from the cabinet with little to no effort. The country style continues to disappear from the room.
I repainted the walls in pale silver by Restoration Hardware and finished the table.
I experimented more with Metallic Master silver paint. I was unable to find hardware that matched in another finish. So I brave the art of refinishing the originals.
I painted the ceiling medallion with the silver paint to finish the look.
The cabinet and hardware are complete. Also I refurbished an old mirror we purchased some thirty years ago by painting it silver for a cohesive style throughout the room.
This room has been a true labor of love and has created a spring board to finding my true design style.
