This adorable children's table set was created by Krista from The Happy Housie with Cherry Blossom and Full Bloom. We love the sweet, stenciled flowers!
Hello everyone! It is Krista from The Happy Housie back again today to share a cute little revamp I did of a vintage child's table and chairs. I bought it at a garage sale and the owner said that it was over sixty years old. The lines were adorable but it was in extremely rough shape, with all kinds of marks and paint stains from years of being unused. I started by giving that table a solid base coat of beautiful bold pink in Cherry Blossom.
I then gave it a top coat of Full Bloom... which is a soft coral shade.
I let the top coat of Sweet Dreams dry for about half an hour before distressing it with a damp rag. I distressed off the Sweet Dreams, revealing the Cherry Blossom, around the edges of the table top and around the spindly parts of the legs. I really love these two shades together- they are so pretty on their own and look so subtle and beautiful when distressed...
Once both coats of paint were dry, I used some clear natural wax to protect the table. I spread it on with my beloved wax brush...
And then buffed it off with a clean, dry rag. The clear wax gives such a smooth finish and beautiful sheen.
To update the chairs I painted them with a couple of coats of Simplicity. Once dry, I used a stencil and added some pretty flowers to the seats using Full Bloom.
The coral color really pops against the fresh white. I love how the set turned out!
I had held onto this set for a couple of years in case I ever had a little girl...but decided it was time to refresh it when a friend of mine had a baby girl. I hope she loves how it turned out just as much as I do!
Thanks for reading. And remember my housie friends, HOME isn't built in a day. Enjoy the journey.
Hi, I'm Krista and I blog over at The Happy Housie. My blog is a home décor and lifestyle blog that was named this because I must admit to you that I am a bit of a "housie"... (think foodie but for houses). I love all things related to houses: decorating, DIY, organizing, crafting, gardening, and more. I love sharing projects and ideas, and especially love finding old pieces and fixing them up to make them vibrant and beautiful again.
