I have wanted a new table and benches in our dining area for awhile now. I have looked around and found that it was going to cost me way more then I wanted to spend and I wasn't getting everything I wanted and/or needed. So, why not revamp the table we have?? It is the perfect size for our space and it is a real sturdy table. The only thing was that I wanted to get rid of four of the chairs and get benches instead. All the chairs just seemed like too much in the room and I thought benches would be the perfect solution. So, my husband sanded the hell out of our table and got it down to the bare wood!!! I have a picture of my old table in a previous post.

|He made the benches and I painted the bottom the same color at the table legs. I stained the top of them the same color as the top of the table.|
|I added the brown paint on top of the gray paint and then wiped it down with a cloth to give it an aged look.|
I stained the top of the table a dark color and I painted the legs a light gray color and then went over it with some brown to make it look aged.
