Restyling your dining room table legs is a lot easier than transforming your own pair in spin class! While I am an enormous proponent of exercise and actually have a couple of full marathons under my belt, I have a better track record in turning heads via painting table legs than from all of the hard work on my own. (See post about why I made my shower “injury recovery” friendly.)
Now that I’ve possibly disappointed you, by not saving you from having to purchase the latest edition of Shape or Cosmo, I hope you’ll forgive me and continue to read more about the merits of a little paint and glaze. Better yet, I’ll just jump into sharing some before and after photos so you can focus your thoughts on your own table and not worrying about your next power workout.
Sometimes green happens to an otherwise perfectly lovely Ethan Allen table.
This glass-topped table is really
all about the base in need of a new view below.
Last but not least, in the ever so very very popular color duo of linen and brown glaze, is this looker. (To see an entire post on this room click here.)
These leg makeovers were each completed within several hours in the same rooms in which they were photographed. An entirely different style was achieved without spending the time and cash to replace. The owners all chose looks that mirror the fabulous neutrals that are all the rage and even get bragging rights for upstyling and recycling!
Bottom line: You don’t need to walk past your table daily and wish you had chosen differently all those years ago. Grab a paint brush or call me…either way it’s still less effort than spin. Promise.
