I have finally painted my dining room chairs white! I say finally because it has been one of those annoying items on my “to do” list that I’ve had for years. I have only one yet to complete as I ran out of wax and need to go buy more today. I am using Annie Sloan Old White with her clear and dark wax on them. In the meantime, I’m sharing a few Christmas pics of our home that I had hoped to share with you yesterday.
The dining room is almost done (once that last chair is finished) and the tree is up! I scooted the stenciled farmhouse dresser into the dining room for the time being. The shabby chic china cabinet is waiting for a new owner in the corner of the living room that the dresser will eventually take.
I’m off to buy more wax to finish that last chair. Will share tomorrow!
Your house looks fabulous – very well done and not overdone! Inspiring! What sort of wax do you use, please? You’ve probably said before but I need some for an outdoor table as recommended by the manufacturer and I don’t know what to get. I do wonder, however, if the indoor wax would be alright outdoors?
Hi Sharon, I use Annie Sloan clear wax or Fiddes and Sons. I wouldn’t recommend it for outdoor use. I would use a poly or urethane product instead. I think it will hold up better. You can always wax it first (if you want that hand rubbed finish) and then add a clear protective finish on top of it. Best of luck!
It looks so pretty and welcoming! Just the right amount of decorations.
Thanks so much, Sian!
They look so pretty!! I can relate with putting off the painting of the chairs! I finally resorted to spraying mine and just have my one chait done. I’m considering painting the other end chair and then leaving the 2 side chairs wood. Your dining room looks gorgeous!!
Thanks, Jen! I can totally relate to the spray painting! I took my chairs the other evening right before dinner and just went to town with the paint. I just knew if I kept putting it off for the right time that it just wouldn’t happen!

Your home looks amazing Suzanne! I’ve have plenty of to-do projects around my home (on the list for many years)! I better get crack’n..lol.
Thank you so much Denise! Yes, the never ending “to do” projects just keep on coming!
The Christmas decorations look great!! I like the Santa hat draped on the back of the chair. Can’t wait to see the completed chairs!! 🙂
Your home looks beautiful. Will the china cabinet be on Etsy or is someone local buying it, please?
Hi Debbie, thanks so much! The cabinet is available for sale. I will email you directly with the details 🙂
How very pretty. The to do list is long and never ending. Isn’t it great to cross off a project.
It is great to cross off a project although as yous said, there are so many more just behind it!
Thank you so much!
