Hi, I'm Suzanne and I'm a stay at home mother to three. I have started my own vintage furniture business and am writing this blog to document its journey from idea to reality. My favorite things include my Matthew, Ella and Sophie, my handsome husband and all things PAINT! Believe me, I am not an experienced business person but I do know how to sand, strip, paint and am a DIY queen, so please follow along as I navigate the ups and downs of The Painted Drawer.

Dining Room Makeover

Please bear with me this week as I transform my dining room.  I find the whole look to be rather dated (in a not so good way) and want to brighten it up.

The chairs have a lot of detail that just goes unnoticed,  poor souls.

Oh, yeah.  I'm brave (or not so bright!)

One coat and a wash, and some sanding and a dark wax and now you can see the detail!
Oh yes, I believe this makeover is going in the right direction. 
More to come tomorrow - I believe the table also needs some help.  I found some amazing curtains at the thrift store - wait, really getting ahead of myself here :)
If you like what you see, please join - I love new followers!!
