We are so happy to finally have a piece available. We’ve been very busy working behind the scenes. There’s been a lot of cleaning, organizing, reorganizing, etc. You know…all the stuff that isn’t too much fun to do but has to get done. Thank goodness that’s done and we can move on to the fun stuff.
One of our goals for 2019 is to work through the pile of furniture we’ve managed to accumulate. No more buying until we reduce some of our current inventory…unless we find something too good to pass up!
Today we are posting a table and chair set for children. We had originally hoped to have it done for the holidays but that didn’t happen! Since it’s been sitting in the garage we decided to go ahead and finish it up anyway.
The table has a solid wood base with a laminate top. The chairs are solid wood.
We started by sanding and prepping the table and chairs. We then primed the laminate top to get a good base for the paint and offer extra durability. Once the primer was dry we painted the set using Behr chalk paint in the color Swiss Coffee.
We then hand sanded the entire set so it would be super smooth. We lightly distressed the set as to mask any natural distressing that may occur from the kiddos.
We applied 3 coats of polycrylic in a matte finish to the tabletop, again for extra durability.
Finally, we finished the set with Behr white wax.
We couldn’t be happier with the end result!
