Finally Finished!!

Some of you may remember this project I started back at the end of January. I had this lovely table and chair set that had so much potential to be pretty again. I had a vision for it and I am quite happy with how it turned out. (Of course, I had to paint it white!!)

A little how to: First you need to lightly sand and then clean the pieces. The second step is to apply a coat of primer (I use oil based primer and paint). Next I apply two coats of paint. Finally, I take a power sander and distress the piece wherever I feel it needs it. As for the chairs, I recovered the seats with batting and white denim. I purchased the gorgeous linen seat covers ... the customer has the option of purchasing the chairs with the denim or adding the seat covers. Personally, I think the linen covers add so much to the look.

Here it is all set up at the shop.

I love the lines and detail on the table and the chairs. I wish I had room in my house to keep it!!
This week, for the first time, I am participating in Metamorphis Monday on
