Fun and Funky - a table and chairs makeover

I am so excited to post this before and after transformation!

A couple of months ago, my Auntie Sue over at Sue Bee's and Butterflies found this awesome kids table and chairs set at the thrift store. She offered it to me and my lil sis and lucky me, I was first to call her back :D~.

I have been trying to figure out what I could do with it, I really wanted to make it fun and funky for the boys and it took me awhile but I finally decided to tackle it!

These are the before shots, it is a huge table with 6 chairs.

And here we have the after, 6 sweet little chairs. I painted 3 in teal and 3 in red. I wanted to add some polka dots but I think that would be too girlie. So I might add some fun shapes or stripes later on, just not sure about it yet.

And here is the whole set, I covered the entire table (with the exception of underneath as Big J pointed out this morning) with chalkboard paint. I love how it turned out and the chalk really pops out on the dark surface - very different than our dull driveway!

Someone just woke up - still has his bink binks in!

I am loving the colors of the chairs.

Big J figuring out that he can color the WHOLE table.

Big J's creation

So there you go, I am pretty proud of this little transformation!
Have a wonderful weekend ~ Kristin

i would of loved to have a table like this when i was a kid. i still can't bring myself to make a chalkboard table for my little ones. my 2 year old already thinks all the walls are designed for his artwork.

Wow! I LOVE the table AND chairs!! Great job! I re-did ours recently, but hubby wouldn't let me do anything creative (I wanted the table white and chairs different pastel colors), but it ended up all white.....but still pretty. I LOVE the idea of doing the table in chalkboard! Thanks for stopping by!
