I love doing little table & chair sets. For the most part they are really easy and fast. They are in high demand in my booth and don't stick around for very long. I am quite boring with my style though. I tend to do the same thing over and over. Old white, walnut stain & burlap.
I do have to admit I kinda' have a love/hate relationship with the whole thing though! I LOVE doing the tables, and absolutely HATE doing chairs!! Painting every nook, spindle and leg really numbs my brain (and hands) that I usually don't even do them. I usually stick the table in my booth and let the buyer fend for themselves when it comes to chairs. Sorry, just hate them that much.
I decided this weekend that I am going to change my 'attitude' and find a way to make friends with the whole chair make-over thingy. I went to home depot and spent $89.00 on a Graco Hand Sprayer..yes, I finally did it. So much for my vintagy, hand painted finish. Maybe I could just spray the first coat and then use the brush on the second/third?? Am I a cop-out? I feel like one. I haven't given it a go as of yet but I have about 6 gorgeous cane back chairs just waiting for me to give them the once over with my new toy!
I will have to let you know how it works with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. I sure don't want to waste any precious paint but I feel like what I can make up in precious time will be well worth it!! I guess I forgot to take a before pic of the table but I am sure you can imagine the same orangy wood we all know and love.

Cute vintage scale and rusty can...love using old vessels as vases.
It is going to be an amazing week here in North Texas and I am hoping to hit Canton (1st Monday Trade Days) on Thursday. Since I haven't been in a few months I have a pretty long list of 'stuff' that I need. Hopefully I can drag somebody with me, not as much fun junkin' by yourself!
Hope you have a great week!!
