Monday

My new kitchen table


I spent the morning painting a table I found on the side of the road.. it was in such great shape.. wonderful heavy wood and it has a  butcher block  table top! The only real work was having to buy some screws to fit, then put the table together... the (tossers) people took it apart before they tossed it. (imagine they took it apart?)  
   
The chairs were finds at  Walmart  on a great mark down.. $7.95... There were only 5 chairs left so I bought 4 of them.  They have been in the boxes out in my store room for a few months, and were really easy to put together. I also painted them white to match.. not bad for a set!


I need to get some glaze for the next step.. sometime this week.
It's been so hot here in SoFla, they said the index is 110 today, but it's the "steamy" thing going on.. and I'm like a mole staying in the a/c.  So I did the painting in the kitchen... no way would I survive outside!


Once I get the seat cushions made I'll post the reveal....
I so love it when I find such great furniture pieces...  grand total about $36.00 for the set!

Big Smile here!

I love the table and chairs. That table would have definitely come home with me had I seen it on the side of the road.

You struck gold, both with the freebie table and those chairs. I never see stuff that cheap at my Walmart. It looks like those chairs were just made for the table.

Well, I need you to come here and help me as I am furniture-challenged! The table and chairs are awesome, I wish I had your talent. Now I'm kicking myself because we saw an entire dining room set out by the road on our way home Sunday...I could have had a complete set. ;-(

Just beautiful!

What a great curbside find, and the chairs look as if they were born to live with that table!

You are the second blogger I saw today who painted furniture in her kitchen. Oh, what a hot summer can do!
