A few weeks ago I highlighted ten dining room table knock offs – all affordable ways to get a new dining table in time for the holidays without having to fork out a ton of money. You may have been nodding your head thinking you’d love a new dining room table but aren’t quite ready to take on a build-from-scratch furniture project yet. Well, my friends, I didn’t forget about you. Today I am sharing five different ways to make over your existing dining room set and take it from drab to fab before you host that big holiday meal!
This is one of my favorite table makeovers featured here on KOD. Not only is the weathered finish simply beautiful, but Pam from Simple Details had never even refinished or stained a table before. Mind blowing, huh?
Here’s a brilliant way to use what you’ve got but also make something new. Reuse the legs and apron from your existing table and build only a new top. I know… genius!
Think outside the can of paint and give your tabletop a completely custom look by stenciling it to resemble Indian inlay. Talk about a statement-making table!
For this table makeover, the existing legs were repurposed and then a “zinc” tabletop was made using MDF and sheet metal. Swoon!
Lighten up a dark table with a light weathered gray paint technique that amazingly cost only $20 to pull off. That’s quite a bit easier on the budget than buying a new table!
In case you missed it, here are ten ways to build your own knock off dining table for LESS!
