I’m so excited to share with you this chair and tiny table makeover!
The chair and tiny table were found on a Thrift Store shopping day! The tiny table I picked up for $2.00! It’s not vintage but it was sturdy and I love when a table has a shelf! More storage is always nice. The chair is one of a pair and I haven’t decided what to do with the other one yet! Any suggestions?
I think this was a great transformation!
Don’t you think these are great! The table and the chair are both small scale, so they will fit just about anywhere!
I used the new paint line Dixie Belle Mineral Chalk Paint I will be carrying at the Lone Star Mercantile and on line very soon! (Soon is NOW!! The link to my shop is here and at the top of my home page) This is the smoothest and creamiest paint! Really fun to use.
A chip brush with the ends trimmed works great! This one has been used and cleaned many times but it’s really holding up well.
Don’t you love these lilies? They were so beautiful I took them with us to Louisiana so we could enjoy them during our visit!
Here’s how I did it!
I sanded each piece with some 220 sandpaper by hand. Then painted 2 coats of Dixie Belle Paint and then waxed! Easy Peasy. I removed the seat to make it easier to paint. Dixie Belle paint doesn’t require a top coat, but I love the feel of waxed wood.
Spraying the seat with water before painting helped the paint go on smooth over the texture of the woven seat. I think it would have worked fine with or without the water but I had a new spray bottle and wanted to try it out!
Do you have a Nancy Drew Collection? I don’t have the whole set but I do have quite a few! I read these over and over in Junior High, I wanted a car just like Nancy’s!
After painting I did a little distressing!
This little pillow is really sweet!
This little pair are at my booth at the Plano Antique Mall! If you live in the area I hope you’ll stop by and check them out!
Until next time!
I shared this post at this party! I hope you will check it out for great ideas and projects!
Come back soon and see how I updated the fireplace in our new house for $25.00!
Here is the before! You’ll have to come back to see the after!
