A Mid Century Marriage

My friend, Valrey, a.k.a. the Picker Chic, is my go to person when I'm on the hunt for furniture. If you need something, chances are she has it! I wasn't looking for anything specific, but stopped by just to see what she had. I was so excited to get 2 of these mid century chairs...
The original vinyl seats were in great condition. And I loved the color!
There were are few scratches on the wood and the caning on the back was faded.

I revived the wood and the caning with Dixie Belle Paint Company gel stain in the color, Espresso.
I love this stuff! It's the consistency of pudding. I just dip a rag directly into the can and wipe it on. There are no drips like with traditional stain.

It only took about 10 minutes to revive these beauties!

Valrey also had a little mid century modern table that I thought would go perfectly with the chairs.
The top was scratched and the drawers and sides of the table were missing some veneer...
I used Swamp Mud to fill in the missing veneer, let it dry overnight, then sanded it smooth.
 I painted the drawers with the color Peacock.
Then added black wax to make them match the vinyl seats of the chairs.
I used more of the Espresso Gel Stain to revive the wood and make it match the chairs.

It's a perfect marriage...
And, it's fitting that these pieces are now part of the decor at Mill Creek, a wedding venue in nearby Griffin, Georgia.

  1. You are a miracle worker, those look great!

  2. They truly are a beautiful marriage, like they were made for each other. Stunning makeover!

  3. Oh Virginia, this is one of my favorite makeovers ever, and I'm not even a MCM person.

  4. Oh I love this! And I love that gel stain. I'm going to look for it out here. It would definitely make so many projects so much easier!

  5. Wow!! The chairs alone are beautiful but with that cabinet -- amazing! I haven't heard of Swamp Mud! Will have to pin this so I remember it when I need it haha!

  6. I love the blue on end table and how well it matches the seats of the chairs.

  7. I love this! I also need to get me some of their Swamp Mud, I hate it when veneer is missing! Love that stain as well. Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
