This little table and chairs belonged to my daughters as children.
Some of you may remember pine furniture with a clear finish and cut-out hearts was very popular during the 80s. (uh oh, telling my age.)
Now that I have grandchildren, I decided to recreate this little dining set for them.
First I sanded the wood finish and then painted everything but the top with SW Kilim Beige (just because I had it handy.) It happened to be the paint I used on my kitchen ceiling, but any soft ivory color would work for this effect.
On everything else, painted beige, I brushed on a mocha glaze and wiped it off till I got the effect I wanted.
I painted the top with chalkboard paint so my grandchildren can draw, erase, and draw again.
