Table 4 Two.....

This little "table for two" came together from a few pieces.  Mr. Biff
found the table top in pretty good condition but no legs.  He got to
work sanding and staining and it turned out really lovely!
 Not too much later that week we found a laminate table
(faux maple) with "real" wood legs in the free pile
at a local thrift store.....and, a table for two was born formed.

Here's Mr. Biff putting on the legs.
The pressback chairs were newish but they were so sturdy and I knew
I could make them look more vintage with a touch of distressing and
just the right paint.  I made my chalkpaint out of flat latex, unsanded
white grout, water and some turqouise/tealy oops paint for colour.

When we set this little beauty up in the driveway for her photo shoot
a number of our neighbours came by to see if we were actually going
to dine on the asphalt this particular night!
This has to be one of my favourite pieces yet that I've painted - glad
she's gone to a good home!

Lots more to show you this week so hope you'll hang around!
