We talk about this all the time. Updating our dining room furniture. This is must know information for when we're in the mood for a little change in our dining rooms.

A beautifully refinished thrift store find.

The simplest finish was used to transform these into gorgeous French Country dining chairs.

Step 1. Remove the seat from the chair. If you flip the chair over, you'll see (4) screws at each corner holding the seat onto the chair.

Step 2. Lightly sand your chairs.

Step 3. Then paint them and wipe off the paint in places so they look like they have an old patina to them.

Often times with old furniture, the old oils will come through and slightly yellow if your using a white paint - making them look like they have a patina on them.
