CHARMING CHANTILLY LACE DINING TABLE

Full View - Dining Table

This trestle leaf table has been part of my life since 1972. It has lots of "character", since it has been used in many different ways, over the past 30+ years. I recently gave it a new "lacy" look, so it would better compliment our 95 year old Galveston Island home.

I opened up the leaves of the table, and placed an old lace table cloth over the top, securing it with painters tape. It took a little bit of time to make sure the table cloth was even around all of the edges. You can usually find old soiled table cloths at thrift shops and yard sales.

The next step was to apply the spray paint. I prefer using Krylon, since it has a strong even spray. Two colors were used, Ivory Satin & Antique White. This gave the lace stencil a little more depth.

You only need to let it dry for about 15 or 20 minutes. Now for the best part; removing the table cloth. It is always a delightful surprise to see the finished product!!

The dining chairs are not great, but until I can find the perfect chairs, it was best to camouflage them. I draped a lace panel over the back, gathered the excess fabric in the front and secured it with a rubber band and ribbon.
