Tea for Two

Hellooo Monday!!!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and took a look at the feature from Friday!  I survived the sleepover, although I did sleep for over three hours Saturday afternoon to recover... I don't remember ever having that much energy!!

And today I am excited to show you the project for my niece Stella that I completed.  Unfortunately I ran out of time as we are not able to bring it down ourselves so I had to send it with the in-laws so its not quite the vision I had in my head but I still think it turned out pretty cute:)

Here's the before: 

The table and two chairs cost me six bucks at value village:) I thought that was pretty good!

My husband thought I should keep the little bear on the top of the table....I did not, so the sander was put to work!
Then all the pieces took a coat of primer and several coats of paint.  I just went to Home Depot and found the mis-tints and oops section so the cans were three bucks each, primer I already had a the can of spray paint was six bucks...not bad right? Looking online these things sell for over 100 dollars so I was feeling pretty good about myself!

And here's the after!

Ended up more soft and pretty then the funky vibrant colors I originally had in my head but things don't always go the way you imagine I guess eh? 

What I love about it is that the table is now a chalkboard for her to draw on, when she learns to draw rather than eat it...hopefully not too many incidents with that! 
Now we have to see in October if the colors in this table and chairs predict the gender of the baby on the way:) 

Have a great Monday everyone!
