are (just about) finished....
they started out looking like this
as i blogged about here.
i just need to wax the pedestal. i was too tired today and i wanted to show you how it turned out.
we both love it. no one else has seen it yet so we haven't gotten any unbiased opinions.
i painted the apron of the table and the two stripes on the pedestal for some visual interest and to tie in the chairs with the table.
you can see that the top of the table has been waxed but not the apron or base.
the table has the leaf in it right now but we usually just use it when we have company.
it has already lightened up the space and we love it. ( it looks less blue than in this picture. the other pictures are more true to color.) i am still trying to decide if i want to paint the ball in the ball and claw foot in the blue as well.
we still have to paint the cabinets and replace that crappy piece of crap flooring....i'll give you the 411 on that flooring disaster soon.
i used the annie sloan chalk paint in old white for the table and i used a mixture of old white, louis blue and duck egg for the chairs.
i also used minwax paste wax in clear for the table top. it worked beautifully.
i am working on this piece next..
i got a gallon of the prettiest pale pink paint for free so i thought i would try it out on this little desk.
i found three of these chairs the other day at goodwill for $5.00 apiece.
i think the seat cover alone is worth $10.00, don't you think?
i got three of them.....and painted one of them with the old white chalk paint.
i found some cute pink and white pinstripe fabric for the chair seat. i can't wait to see how they both
look together. i'll share that in an upcoming post.
i hope everyone is having a great fourth of july weekend....
