Chalkboard Table and Chairs


Well I finished those chairs I picked up to go with the chalkboard table...
If you recall I painted the table last year. (you can find it here).  But it never sold...So I decided to get rid of the pink and paint some chairs to match...hoping it might sell for a playroom.




The chairs had a heavy coat of varnish...or something like that...so I painted them with a coat of oil based primmer first.

Below is the before picture ( along with some other goodies I found).


I must say chairs are a pain in the rear to paint!!  But I persevered and was happy with the end results.

I added turquoise stripes to match the table and then stenciled on the words Play and Have Fun on one and Dream, Create and Draw on the other...Okay to be honest I can't really remember what  I wrote on that one for sure and my pictures aren't very good...but you get the idea...I hope!



I also painted the back of the chairs with chalkboard.....



Here they are at the market.

I wish I had gotten better pics but I finished them the day before we had to set up so I am amazed that I took any at all!  Do you want to know the funniest thing is??  The chairs sold but not the table...What the heck??? Guess I'll be looking for more chairs!  :)

Thanks for visiting and know that I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar.

  3. The table and chairs look great - I hope they sell.

    You are right about chairs being a pain to paint. I need to paint my dining room chairs, but I just keep putting it off.
