Fixer Upper: A Contemporary Update for a Family Sized House
The footprint of the original dining room was actually reduced somewhat to allow the expansion of the kitchen. The space still feels roomy and well suited for entertaining. Joanna added a farm style table, industrial metal chairs and botanical prints in simple black frames.
The same carnauba paste wax that maintains a car's finish does a dynamite job on painted metal furniture. Once a season, apply an even coat with a damp terry cloth towel to furnishings; let dry, then lightly buff with a soft cotton rag. The wax will repel water, preventing rust, and also restore luster to dull paint.
