Medallion Table

It's been a whirlwind of a month. Since my Dad's passing I have asked my Mom to be my partner & help me with my furniture painting business. She happily accepted. We have been busy all month trying to get the projects I had in my garage completed to make room for some custom work I have coming up. It seems as fast as I can get the pieces painted & delivered Karen & Denise at Sassy Fabrics (V Trading) in Grand Blanc, sell them. Great job girls!! Keep up the good work!!

Anyway, I picked up a pedestal table from CL with two chairs I posted about a few weeks ago Here.  My husband had plans for the chairs, so I knew I would need to find other chairs to go with this table. Here is what I did to the table:

I've been on the hunt for a round table so I could use this very cool medallion stencil on it. I had it left over from my Faux finish days. Here is the only before picture I have of the table:

I painted the base DIY Paris Grey chalk paint, & the top is Old White with a band of Graphite on the edge.  Then I did the stencil in Graphite, sanded, distressed & a couple of coats of clear wax.

Now I needed some chairs....  I went up to Collette's Antique mall (where I have a booth), they have a Flea Market on the weekends.  I was able to score Six solid wood chairs!!!  Two of them are captains chairs.  I couldn't believe my luck.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. Here is a before of the captains chairs, for some reason I don't have one of the four other chairs. They look just like these only without arms:

I painted the captains chairs Paris grey to match the table base & the other four I painted black to match the medallion on the table top.

 Here is one of the captains chairs with the drop cloth cushion. I added a cute graphic to it from The Graphics Fairy.  The four chairs all have a different graphic, then the captains chairs have the same cool Paris crown.  I like the way they coordinate with the table. 

Here's a good look at the medallion on the table top:

Sigh..............So very french.....

Well, Karen just did it again!  Sold all six chairs.  Now I have a table without chairs again. Guess I better get used to this.  Nice problem to have right?

Hope you all have a great week & thanks for visiting,  Dee
