Painting dining tables can be a daunting type of furniture refinishing. When you go step by step, refinishing a table isn’t any different than any other type of furniture – they usually just take more time. If you haven’t painted a dining table before, start with a smaller one!

A repeat client of mine recently asked me to refinish this smaller Duncan Phyfe table she’s had for many years:

The finish was completely worn off in some places, water stained in some places, or crackling and peeling off in yet other places.

STEP 1: PREP

Never skip this step! Clean with a good degreaser, wipe down with a fresh cloth to remove any residue, and let it dry completely. I ended up sanding this piece nearly down to bare wood to make sure the surface was even and smooth before painting.

STEP 2: PAINT

My client wanted the table done in a classic black, which I absolutely love! I gave the table two coats of Liquorice, the perfect black!

STEP 3: FINISH WORK

To show off the beautiful shape of this table I gave it a light distressing around the edges and normal places of wear.

STEP 4: SEAL

I opted for a water based poly finish for this table. Always make sure to read the can label for the recommended amount of coats.

I did all the same steps to the chairs as well. This table looks stunning in Liquorice, does it?

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
