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
