This is an Oak dining table, with clawed feet. You can find them at many unfinished furniture stores, or look under Oak tables in your area. They usually come with extension in the middle.They are not considered to be "modern", but a paint job can change that.

yes and a light sanding first, a damp cloth to remove dust, prime them and then the color...a number of steps but worth it or take them to a professional, I would use two cans per chair. Below is a mid century modern bar I painted years ago but this was a can of paint and a brown wash ragged on some wood burning design for added Asian flair, gold leaf and believe it or not sharpie for the leopard spots

I'm sorry, I have no idea of the exact color, but I believe I read it was "gold spray paint" at some point; I think you can get the exact same look if you just hit the hardware store and ask for that.

Thank you, you just made my life a little easier.
I have been debating painting my entire dining room furniture (buffet/hutch and sideboard) charcoal or whitish maybe,,,,but the charcoal sounds like the winner. Again,,,Thanks

Anne, I am also in need of painting my kitchen table and chairs, I was originally looking at black but after reading your comments, I would love to see your charcoal table, could you post it and advise what colour you used.
Great appreciate your advise on painting with latex.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Take a good look at this furniture. I wish I had a before picture, as I'm sure that table and those chairs were completely mundane and depressing in their former lives. What a difference spray paint in unexpected colors can make!
A layer of gold paint changed these chairs from ho-hum to bling bling fabulous.
Becky Harris added this to How to Make Dining Fun!
Switch up boring wooden chairs with some blingy gold paint.
Becky Harris added this to Dining in the Round
This oval pedastal table has plenty of room for squeezing in a few extra seats.
Kit Pollard added this to Not Neutral
I absolutely love this shade of blue and I think it's so perfect with the gold chairs - like a cocktail dress paired with gold strappy sandals.
The Shabby Nest added this to Great Combinations: Blue and Brown
To add whimsy to a room, try using a palette that incorporates a rich shade of cornflower blue with an almost taupe shade of brown.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Ways with Moulding in the Dining Room
Painted the same color as the wall, the box molding is not a distraction for the large patterned wallpaper it frames. The result is big on drama. More ways with molding: Molding: Add Texture by Detailing Your Detail
Shawn Gauthier added this to Clever New Uses for the Picture Frame
Like the idea of wallpaper but not willing to commit to an entire wall? Framed wallpaper panels are a great solution. Paint the frames the same color as the wall to give the panels the effect of molding.
Shawn Gauthier added this to 11 Vibrant and Colorful Dining Rooms
Do you have a traditional wood dining table and chairs? Consider your set to be the new source of bold color! All it takes is paint: choose different shades for the table and chairs for contrast. Consider painting your walls a complementary color to finish the look.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Everyday Items Go Glossy and Glam
Dining table. If you want to get the kids to the dinner table, make it enticing! A dining table painted in high-gloss may not get them to eat their vegetables, but at least it will be a treat for the eyes.
