the kitchen table and chairs.....

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?
snort!!!
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....
we are!

Love the way the chairs look. And the table is going to be just as pretty, I'm sure. Can't wait to see your whole kitchen.

I absolutely love how your table looks!!! I have the same table (in oak) and have been dying to paint it white but have not done so because I am worried about how well the finish will hold up. Does the paint chip and scratch? Is the wax a strong enough of a protective finish? I am such a baby when it comes to painting furniture - need to be more fearless!!

It looks beautiful. I love the blue and it makes a nice contrast from the dark cabinetry. The stripe on the pedestal is a nice surprise. :)

Excellent job! Go for it and paint the ball blue -- your set looks great.

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Just beautiful! I'd love to do mine, is your table top wood? My table is all wood except for the top of it which I think is some type of formica maybe, I'm just wondering if yours was too and how you did it. Love the chairs too so pretty!

Amy Chalmers said...

I love how the table and chairs look!! REally beautiful color that you mixed up for the blue. I see you started your cabinets, and they look like old white. I painted my entire kitchen with old white, then decided I would do a paris grey wash on the lower cabs. I am now going to repaint them so it is all old white. come by and search the blog to see my kitchen cab paint experience if you are interested!
