French Graphic and Vintage sheet Antique table and Chairs makeover




So here is my latest project AKA, get this crap out of the Garage..LOL!
Its funny how you find things when you do. I have had a bunch of chairs forever and no table.
Well, My sister called me one day and told me she was at Goodwill and they had this yellow table for 14.99. She wasn't sure I would like it cause it was yellow and old. I told her to hold it for me.

So I get there and this is the table..SHAAAAA of course I LOVED IT!!
(also notice the mug she got me...ahhhh sisterly love..LOL)
So I threw it in my suburban and brought her home.

It would now join 2 of these three chairs.


I had painted the chairs in a bored moment with some of my CeCe caldwell paint and recovered them in a different fabric, but when I saw this table, I knew......They need the vintage sheets I had been saving. So I recovered them again and since the sheets are thinner I used and old tshirt as an additional barrier.

and covered them with this beautiful sheet I was saving.

I knew I needed something FRENCH for this table. :) So I got one of my FAVORITE graphics from
the graphics fairy that I had been saving.

I used my carbon paper to transfer it on and started Painting..
 

Once it was done drying I distressed it and added some of the blue paint from the chairs in a dry brush technique on the top, to bring it all together.
 


I think they are the perfect fit.  Don't you?


Have a BEAUTIFUL day.

How cute, this set would be great in a Lake Michigan cottage; can just imagine myself waking up to the sunrise and sipping on a hot cup o' jo!

Beth said...

These turned out just darling! What a great find your sister made with that table - it's the best when you don't even have to paint it! And I think I'd kill for those FREE chairs! Nicely done!

PitterAndGlink said...

Beautiful! I love the vintage graphic. :)

Donna Wilkes said...

I am glad that someone else saves vintage sheets like I do. Love the yellow and blue. The chairs were FREE!?! Our city will no longer let us put free items out on the curb. They actually come by and paint the items day-glo orange and charge a $30 pick-up fee to take the stuff to the landfill! Happy you saved these lovely pieces.

Yes, your table and chairs ARE the perfect fit! Love the colors together and the graphic really adds the finishing touch. I'm a Michigander and have never been to Grandville. I'll have to look it up. Hubby and I love to take summer drives in HIS/our Camero so maybe you'll see me at your booth one day.
