Table Re-Do Progress

Dad and Peter dismantled the trestle table.
 
 
Next, the legs were attached.


 
 
In the process, I have somehow fallen in love with my windsor chairs again!
 

We also added a board all the way around the table (under the top) to cover where the legs had been attached to give it a more finished look.
 
Next, Peter sanded the table top.

 
I wanted a dark stain, so I chose Rust-Oleum Wood Stain in KONA.
 
this is one coat......and pictures do not do it justice!

It wasn't quite the color I wanted, so I dug out my Briwax Clear Wax and rubbed that on.

This actually took off a little of the stain for a much better look. The wax also seals the wood and gives it a smooth finish. I am letting it dry overnight and will give it another coat of wax tomorrow. This is the color/shade I'm going for....

Of coarse, mine will have painted legs which I now need to sand and paint. I think I've decided on a creamy white.
 
 
 
Chairs are another story!! Just when I thought I had decided on something, I changed my mind again. There was a reason why I was hesitant on ordering. When I feel like that, it means it isn't really what I want. I hate to hurry with a decision and buy something I end up not loving! After putting the windsor chairs around the table the other night, I kindof liked them. Then, Mom called the next morning and said she had been looking at pictures of chairs and thought I should consider keeping them too.
But then I had another dilemma.... (WHAT COLOR TO PAINT THEM)??
Here are my options:
 
{A} Grey
Farmhouse table: white legs, dark stain top, grey chairs???
 
{B} White
Rustic farmhouse table by Nest of Bliss
 
{C} Dark Brown
Updated Vintage - the lighter cabinetry is a little more appealing in this picture . . .
 
I kept going back though, to my favorite look....wicker (seagrass, rattan) parsons chairs....

and finally, after much indecision, I've decided on painting two of my windsor chairs
