I love refinishing furniture. It’s so much more satisfying than buying something new and is much less expensive. The transformations are so fun to watch.
I found this set on craigslist.org for around $30. I actually liked the weathered blue and red chairs, but they just weren’t our style. After a little work they fit perfectly in my daughter’s pink bedroom.
A few coats of antique white and light pink paint and the table and chairs have new life. The process was easy. I lightly sanded the table and chairs, then covered with spray paint. Yes, the kind from a can at Home Depot. Once the paint was completely dry I went over the edges with sandpaper for a distressed look.
Total cost for table and chairs: approximately $40 Pottery Barn Kids has a similar table and chairs here. It retails for $237, but is on sale for $199.

It will be so fun when the girls can sit at the table together for crafts, games, and tea parties. Until then, L can use the chairs to practice standing up ♥ It’s a great photo prop too!
