1.) Turn almost any style of dining table into a country farm style dining table very easily. This is a really easy look to achieve. The big point here is the raw wood top. Firstly you want to strip the stain off of the top surface. After you are down the to raw wood you can seal it with some clear shellac or leave it unfinished for an even more rustic finish. Secondly just pick your favorite color or colors for the base. This method works with almost any style of table, from country,  to French Provincial and or modern. 

This table has a very simple clean mid century style but now it looks like it's right out of an old farm house, not a Danish furniture catalog. 

This is an almost Art Deco style table that would have been finished in a dark cherry or mahogany. 

2.) Drop leaf tables are a great way to take your painting to the next level. It's a great way to work in stencils or free hand design techniques. 

This one looks like a folded sign from an old restaurant.

Run some stripes down for a vintage surfboard look.

Work in some gilding wax to accent your trim.

Love how the branch and bird design is carried over to the chair backs as well.

Treat your drop leaf like a three panel screen. Don't be afraid to have your design carry over across multiple sections. 

3.) Due to the ornate designs and trim French Provincial furniture is an excellent candidate for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and French Provincial Dining Furniture is no exception.

You can see how a simple two tone paint job can accentuate the elegance of this style. I really love how the vintage newsprint fabric compliments the Graphite & Pure White.

With the raw wood top this one also has a farm table feel yet it's much more refined than a standard farm table with straight lets.

Don't be afraid to go bold with a deep blue. 

Duck Egg & Provance look especially good with a little distressing done. 

You can see how his Chalk Paint table works in this rather modern dining room.

4.) Clunky round pedestal tables are also great candidates for Chalk Paint® makeovers. Cover up that old golden oak with your favorite Chalk Paint® color.

The Louis Blue looks amazing with this light cherry finish. 

Don't be afraid to use some gilding wax to add some wonderful detail.

Chairs painted & distressed to match the table.

Duck Egg & White seems to be on of the most common color combinations. 

This washed finish really works on this old worn American Empire table. 

As you can see the dark walnut top really works well with the green on the chairs and the base.

This clunky 1970's table and chair set is a completely different piece with some Old White.

5.) Today's final idea really takes an eclectic taste to pull off. This is how you build your own dining room set by mixing and matching tables and chairs. You can even paint them completely different colors.

The English Yellow Chairs really contrast the Louis Blue and add  some lovely color to the room.

This is the perfect shore home kitchen table set

Your chairs don't need to be the same style to work.

You can even go crazy and have two colors per chair.

This dining table has 4 ladder back & 4 French Provincial chairs painted to match.
