Glass dining table

mammaof7February 20, 2013
I was given this glass top dining table. I love the size (can seat 10-12) but it doesn't really fit my decor, which tends o be a bit more country/rustic. It is hard to see, but it sits on 2 large seramic urns. Can I change the chairs, maybe something wood? Not too crazy about fabric, as we have lots of little ones who eat with us often. Thoughts?

It's a very pretty set. I think the chairs would be easy to recover in a fabric of your choice. If you can turn one over, there should be about four screws that are holding the seat to the frame. Unscrew these and the seat should come off and it's easy to reupholster with a staple gun, I've done it about a million times.

Also, you could think about have the underside of the glass spray painted in a color that might work better with your decor. Back painted glass is very pretty.

you can use an etching chemical to create a stencil pattern over entire glass top, maybe something country to relate to your style. it ends up looking like frosted glass where it is applied.

To get the rustic/country look the table and chairs must go.

However, without seeing more pictures it is difficult to give complete advice. Your paint color and moulding look very traditional - not country/rustic. You may need to get some guidance from someone who will help you get the look you want.
