Good morning readers! I have started to re-arrange my home for the ba-dillionth time, and I thought I would show you my latest update! I bought these chairs over a year ago, and they are some of my FAVORITE pieces of furniture in my home. (I bought them at a thrift store for $4.00 by the way). If you missed my “How to shop at Thrift Stores” post a while back, you should check it out. The chairs made their debut here on All Things Thrifty in that post!

As you know, I am a sucker for before and after photos, so I will remind you of what these bad boys looked like before:

The sofa table also needed some love:
Random sidenote: My sofa table project is also in the photos below, I just knew you may ask where that post is also. :)

The chairs were at the head and foot of my dining room table, but since I have replaced them with my newest furniture refinishing project, these turquoise beauties needed a new home.

I love them sitting right next to the sofa table in the living room.

They add just the right amount of pizzazz to the room, don’t ya think!?!?  Random sidenote: Don’t you think dark wood floors would be AMAZING in this room. A girl can dream right?

Both of these projects were painted and glazed with Kilz primer, Krylon Ocean Breeze, and a black glaze. For details on this process, check out the links below.

Or check out my video tutorials on glazing furniture.

    $4 each?! Amazing! Love the re-do! The thrift shops where I live have a lot to learn! Or maybe I just really need to read your "How to shop at Thrift Stores" post :)

    Don't do the dark hardwood floors, you will regret it if you have children! If you want it to stay clean looking you'll have to mop three times a day just to erase all the little footprints–not to mention anything else that brushes the surface. I dream of the day when I can lighten my hardwood to something that makes dirt invisible! Just sayin.

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a means you
    are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!
