I had to use my imagination when I saw this dining set.
It was cute, but the finish had yellowed and the cushion were well used.
I can tell that a couple little girls had a great time at this table.
I striped the table top, sanded it and taped it off. I used several blues and greens.
I distressed the white areas of the table and chairs.
This photo is where I taped off to add white.
The green is a Valspar paint, the blues are a combo of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Ce Ce Caldwell’s paint.
They all play great together 🙂
I recovered the cushions in a coordinating blue and added a stripe on the chair-back.
Distressing a kids table is perfect, nobody will get upset if more scratches appear.
I did 3 thin coats of my favorite matte varnish.
I can envision lots of coloring and laughter at this little table.
I love how it turned out.
I had a vision, it was stripped, it was fresh and it is fun 🙂
