This table is old and one of a kind! I knew as soon as I saw it that it was going to be beautiful white with black chairs! The table was cleaned very well with dawn and water. The top was REALLY dirty so I sanded it down some. I then painted it with GF Snow White and distressed it. The chairs were painted in GF Lamp black. The chairs and table received 3 coats of GF High Performance Top coat. This is a true Farmhouse table!
