There are a few things to do with a kitchen table set, either when you want to replace yours or just want to recapture so more useful space.

Whatever the reason, you’re wondering about the things to do with a kitchen dining set and the space you’ll be left with to create something new.
Things to Do with a Kitchen Table Set
The great thing about these sets is they take-up little space and allow you to serve a quick meal without having to go through the fuss of setting your dining table. It makes for a wonderful space to sit and read or have a conversation with family or friends. But, there will come a time when you’ll want to make a change. Just like the predicament of what to do with old lawn equipment, you’ll need to settle on a suitable solution.
It doesn’t have to cost a lot to own a table that suits your fancy. Stores like Target and IKEA have furniture that’s on-trend and affordable enough to buy without guilt. This isn’t just a fun way to experiment with a look or color (firehouse red, anyone?). It also allows you to buy new, inexpensive tables more often—or save up until you can buy a more expensive, permanent installation. —HGTV.com
A common phenomenon in households is realizing there’s better use for a space or it’s just time to make a change. What was once ideal no longer fits your needs. In some instances, it’s a big project, like taking out built-in shelves, tearing down a wall, or renovating a master bathroom. However, this is more simple and mundane but it’s nonetheless difficult to be creative. So, here are some things to do with a kitchen table set:
- Repaint it for a new look. One problem with having a kitchen table set is it’s part of the dated decor around it. What was fashionable is now out of style, so take advantage of the situation and use the opportunity to repaint it or stain it for a whole new look. This is a great option if you’re doing other kitchen updates and also a way to keep the set for continued use.
- Place it elsewhere to use. If it’s just more room you want to create to expand a countertop or to accommodate something else, consider placing your kitchen table set in another part of your home. If you have a pool house, back porch, or deck, this are great locations to have such furniture.
- Sell it online or at a yard sale. When it’s time to replace your eat-in kitchen set, you can offset the cost of a new one by selling your current one online or host a yard sale and sell a bunch of other unwanted stuff along with it. Another option is to consign it with a furniture resale shop.
- Give it away. If you don’t want to go through the time and trouble of photographing it to sell it online, hosting a garage sale, or hauling to a consignment shop, give it to a charity, local school, or church. You could also give it away to a family member, friend, neighbor, or coworker.
