On Christmas Eve, we got an awesome table and chairs from a family I work with. It was from Pottery Barn Kids, and needed some help. (Click here to see the original post and read the full story.) This is what it looked like:
It needed help.
In March I started sanding the chairs and put some primer and paint coats on them and set a goal to finish the set. I was inspired by Shine You Light blog's Before and After Party. (See that post here.)
The table was next. It took some time. I don't know what was on that table, but it had to come off. (See that post here).
After 3 coats of Martha Stewart metallic paint, I finally finished it in April. It's been done for a while, and you may have spotted it in my chair cushion tutorial (click here), but I had yet to do a true "Before and After" post. So, 5 months and 4 blog posts later, the Pottery Barn Table and Chairs is finished!!
For some reason Ivy is planking on it in her underwear. This photo was taken just moments before nap time...
One more "before":
And here it is in Ivy's room "after"!
Here's some other fun shots from our outdoor impromptu tea party we had with it.
And finally, I can say, I'm linking up to the Before and After Party at Shine Your Light!! Check out the party. I love Before and After photos, and they've got plenty over there!
