and the after shot... Daa - naa!

One table top and chair down,
3 chairs to go...

I know that this style of shabby finish is not everyones taste, but I love it...I think... ;O)
My 3 year old hates it, he was shocked when he saw it and gave me a good telling off
for 'ruining' the table! He said that it was far too horrible to eat dinner from it! and that I should 'fix it and make it white again!' how funny coming from a 3 year old boy, needless to say I ignored him, poor boy obviously has no taste yet! Lol

This is a close up from the back of the chair...

This is a close up from the table top.

I am unsure weather I am actually finished with it, I am wondering weather I should have a clear thin varnish over the top, since meal times with our 2 and 3 year old are usually quite messy (believe it or not, tihi) the wood maybe stained in all sorts of shades of orange food
and felt tip pens!
My husband thinks it would give the table even more character if we just use it as it is, and i agree to some extent,
but I'm not sure... think I might be getting the varnish out before long Lol.
Since my boys and my assistant are choked with the cold and have high temps, and my arms have almost fallen off cos of all that paint scraping, it might be a while before I get to continue with this project and indeed other smaller projects that are waiting.
It maybe a while until my next post :O(
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are happy and well,
Hugs Nina XX

  4. Hello Nina it's jean here. Gayle is up for her tea and has just shown me your blog. Oh dear what have you done with that table and chairs? Did you have a bad day with the boys? Perhaps they look better in the flesh. Gayle is giggling as I wtite this but quite honestly I just could not let the moment pass.
    I still admire all your other work but please leave the woodwork for the joiners.

    Lots of love to you and all your boys.


  5. No mercy, de er fantastiske de børn, man får i hvert fald deres ærlige mening :) God fornøjelse med de sidste 3 :D
