Drop-leaf tables are good for a variety of reasons. Not only do they look great tucked against a wall with the leaves down, you can actually feed two people, one at either end, without extending them. They can serve as storage between meals, as well, for decorative items like placemats and candlesticks, or as a place to do homework, like a de facto island.
Whether your chairs already have paint or a stain on them or you`re working with bare wood, you`ll need to prime the wood first. If the paint is chipped or the wood is damaged, you`ll need to repair those areas to provide a smooth surface for the paint.
The most important part of the sofa is the frame for the whole piece, which should be made of a kiln-dried hardwood such as maple, poplar, beach or oak instead of pine.
As for decorating small kitchen tables, there`s no need to skimp. Use rounded-edge placemats to save corner space, petite centerpieces (one of our favorites is a collection of painted bud vases, each filled with a single flower) or pretty candlesticks. Just leave room for your guests to talk over the decorations—nobody wants to spend their evening having a conversation with a vase of sunflowers.
Soft accent pillows and a warm throw are the perfect accessories to make a sofa extra-inviting. Mix and match different pillow patterns and colors to spice up your outdoor furniture.
If you want to freshen up plastic chairs, you can paint them, too. Clean the chairs first, then use a fine-grit sand paper to rough up the glossy surface. After wiping away the grit, use an enamel spray paint that has been formulated for use on plastic. Apply two to three thin coats of the paint, allowing about an hour to dry in between each coat; be sure to follow the instructions on the can.
If you need ideas on how to update your kitchen chairs, think outside the box. Scroll through Pinterest to get some ideas on colors, decorative finishes or other creative touches. If you just want to paint your chairs, consider using a bold color that will really shine in your kitchen. Try bright yellow for a cheerful set of chairs or consider a striking cobalt for a more sophisticated look. Emerald green, turquoise and coral are other fun shades to consider. If you want to get even more creative, use a different shade of one color to create an ombre effect with your chairs. Or mix and match a bunch of pastels including yellow, mint, blue and pink.
While solid colors are easier to decorate with, patterned sofas don`t show wear as quickly. The most durable and practical material is leather, which wears in, not out; the longer you have leather, the more patina it gets, whereas a fabric, no matter how good, will become worn out.
