#6...updated breakfast set

I have been helping my brother Mike update his 1979 ranch style home in San Antonio. He and his fiance Kelly are going to live in it for about two more years, so we are remodeling with the intent to attract buyers. This photo of the kitchen shows the kitchen cabinets that we recently repainted from their original outdated, dingy oak coloring.

For the breakfast area, a friend gifted us this 1970's breakfast set that was sitting unused in storage. I purchased about $25 of Rustoleum spray paint in "oregano" color, and spray painted the chairs and table base. For the chair cushions I used Dwell Studio for Target cloth napkins and trimmed the table cloth with the same fabric. It was an easy project and in total took about 3 hours to paint, reupholster the seat cushions and make the tablecloth.

Here is a before of the set.

and here it is after the makeover......
