A Refinished Dining Set

I haven’t refinished or painted a furniture piece in a long time, it seems like. The weather was so nice last week so I decided to take advantage of the “good painting” weather and tackle this big project.

The chairs are spray painted with Rustoleum 2X’s Cover Spray Paint – in Fossil. The top was stripped down then stained in ebony. The wood is really red, mahogany or cherry (?) so the ebony color cools it down to a rich dark contrast to the fossil paint.
The fabric choice was from the original owner and in good shape so I left them that way.
I really love the legs.
The odd part about this set is that there are only 5 chairs not 6 and the center leaf is missing. I thought that offering it with a bench would make for a more balanced seating arrangement, leaving one chair free – just in case one breaks..etc.
