We couldn’t pass up this little side table with it’s beautiful little legs.
We are pretty sure it’s original use was as a telephone stand. The phone would naturally sit on top and the phone book would go underneath in the little cubby.
We painted this one in our favorite diy chalk paint using Behr Swiss Coffee. To be honest, we’ve tried many of the big name chalk paint lines in white and just haven’t found anything we like as much as our tried and true diy version.
We finished by sanding it super smooth, lightly distressing the edges and sealing with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in flat.
This is such a versatile little table and would look great just about anywhere.
This little lovely will be heading to the booth at Brothers Antiques North later today. It was in really sad shape when we found it. We cleaned it up and added planks to the top for a little more character. It’s painted with our signature white chalk paint, lightly distressed and sealed with clear wax.
These candlesticks are hand turned and made from pine lumber. They may have knots, small cracks and small holes – we love that because they add character! Each one is unique in it’s own way.
We first stain the candlesticks with Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Curio and then paint them with white milk paint for a chippy finish. Finally, we wet sand each candlestick with hemp oil for a beautiful natural finish.
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.
We’ve been wanting to do a little table and chair set for awhile now. So we were pretty excited when we found this little set.
It was solid wood and had loads of potential.
We started by giving the table and chairs a good cleaning and thorough sanding. We decided to give the set a “Farmhouse” look.
The chairs and table legs are painted with our favorite white chalk paint.
Sanded smooth and lightly distressed to help camouflage any distressing that might be done by the little ones.
Being as this set is for children we chose to use milk paint to stain the top because it contains no additives or distillates that can harm you or the environment. We finished the entire piece by sealing it with all natural, food safe hemp oil.
The table measures 22”H x 27”W
The chairs measure 27”H (chair backs). The seat measures 13”H x 14”W
We love these little shelves! They are so versatile. This solid wood shelf is ready to hang on the wall or set on any table or dresser top. Once again in our excitement to get painting we forgot to get a before picture. I guess we found our resolution for next year.
We were really struggling with the lighting today. Hopefully we were able to do the piece justice.
Painted in our signature DIY chalk paint using Behr Swiss Coffee and sanded smooth.
We lightly distressed to make the details pop.
We finished this piece with Behr white wax and hand buffed for a beautiful satin finish
