Dining Room Finished and SOLD!

Right before our move I decided to start refinishing my dining room (post here), but wasn't able to finish it before the move and it went into storage. Well in the mist of our move, my brother and sister-in-law were redoing their kitchen and dining room. My sister-in-law had seen the pictures on my blog and decided that it would be perfect for their newly remodeled home. So it got a "sold" sign on it and I had a lot of work to still do. So, Saturday it was delivered to there place and off to work I went. Before we moved I had finished painting the table and the hutch, and 4 out of 6 chairs. I still had to sand EVERYTHING, except the table top, and put a top coat on. After sanding everything smooth I distressed the black so the the brown would show through to compliment the top and on the part that came out too light, in a pinch I used brown shoe polish (which worked great and then hand waxed all of the pieces with Minwax finishing paste wax. The squares in the chairs and base of the table were a killer, but in the end it was SO worth it!! The sheen is beautiful. I feel lucky that family members chose it so I can still see it :-)
