So here are the after pics of the new kitchen table...I took the pictures in our living room because it has much better light than in the kitchen, however the table will not be living here :) I found the chairs over a year ago at Goodwill for $6 each and love them. I am not sure they are a perfect "fit" with the table, but for the time being both the table and chairs are functional.
Here is a picture of the table "before":
I painted the table in "Down Pipe" from Farrow & Ball (paint-matched as a Behr color). I LOVE the color and we agreed that our kitchen cabinets will look great in that shade. That will probably be our next major project.
