I picked up this ratty little table and chairs at Goodwill last fall for nine dollars. I attempted to paint it once and it just didn't work the way I'd hoped. So I tried spray primer and paint and this once ugly little table is now an eye catching gem. I will never paint with a brush anything I can spray paint now!
Just looking at her makes me so happy. I learned some good things on this project and gave new life to a cast off that looked like it had already seen its best days.
Paint cost a little more than I would like on this project, only because I bought paint for the entire project twice plus primer ($35). I found two little cushions at IKEA for $4 and then recovered them with fabric from JoAnn (1 yd. $8.99).
Total price was about $58. I spent a little more than I would have liked, but I could never find a children's table and chairs that I loved this much for anywhere near $58!
I saw so many things in the thrifts last week that I would've loved to buy and do a Before and After on. But alas, there is only so much room in one home. Stay tuned for more Before and Afters coming soon!
