DIY Contemporary Dining Room: The entire makeover revolves around being inexpensive and easy to complete on your own. Many eclectic dining rooms boast bright colored chairs that are of differing tones. A great way to add some contemporary style to a dining room without spending a lot of money is to give the furniture a quick paint makeover. You can make your dining room chairs look like they were purchased specifically for the use in a contemporary dining room even if they are solid one tone wood that you may have purchased years ago.
DIY Contemporary Dining Room Step 1: Begin by taking all chairs outside and sanding the finish down. You must remove the varnish from the chairs in order for the paint to stick. Once the dining room chairs have all been sanded down, wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust and allow to dry thoroughly.
DIY Contemporary Dining Room Step 2: Paint each chair with a coat of primer from Benjamin Moore paints or any other paint retailer. Primer will assure that the final paint color show completely and it not darkened by the wood of the chairs. The primer will also assure that the wood is not just absorbing the colored paint in the next step.
DIY Contemporary Dining Room Step 3: Allow Benjamin Moore primer to dry completely which will take about 4-6 hours. Once primer has dried completely you are ready to begin painting the dining room chairs in the many contemporary dining eclectic colors from Benjamin Moore paints.
