Tea Party for Two

>> Tuesday, September 7, 2010

So, last week I showed you my first re-do project. I was very happy with how it turned out and it has a home on my counter for all things mail/junk. I have now completed my second project (don't worry I do not plan on telling you every time I finish something what number it is) and I am so excited to show you.

For a long time now I have been looking for a little children's table. I have priced them from a few different places and haven't found anything that I liked for less than $100. That is not an option for me. And even if it was...who spends that kind of money on something that your kids will undoubtedly mess up.

Enter my new favorite place...

The Goodwill!!

My mom and I found this cute little table and chairs for $17.99.

After deciding that I could handle this little redo I bought it.

This was my first date with spray paint and can I just say...I am shocked we had a second date. After five minutes I quickly decided I am the WORST spray painter EVER!! All you wonderful bloggers out there that do this stuff all the time make it look SOOO easy.

I bow!!

After regrouping and doing a little breathing exercise I went back at it and finished.

And I couldn't be happier. I want to have a tea party, too bad Taylor is just a little to young

I spray painted the chairs and sides of the table and I decoupaged the absolute cutest paper to the table top. I mean who doesn't LOVE Doodlebug paper?

With just about the same amount spent on supplies, the table probably cost me $40. I would have considered paying a whole lot more if I had ever seen something like this in a store so it was totally worth every penny.

LOVE how it turned out, great job on the distressing. So shabby chic...I can totally see Taylor having friends over for tea...I'll make the cookies!

This is so cute! I have yet to find something worthy of this kind of time at Goodwill, but I am inspired to keep looking. Thanks for sharing!

Don't you love Goodwill! Most people can't see past the ugly! But you sure did, and it is so cute!

What a delight! I'm going to my Goodwill right now because you've inspired me to get on with a similar project I have percolating in my brain. THANK YOU!!

I love it! The table is adorable. Don't give up on spray paint yet...try a different brand with a different nozzle!
