Anyway...this is what we started with....It is a 50's or 60's veneer top table with chrome legs. I've always wanted one. I still do. You see, I only saw a corner of the table top at the auction. When I saw the whole thing alone in the parking lot, well that was a different story. The legs were rusty and there was some sort of sticky grime on them. Gross. The table top was scratched and chipped and most of the cracked ice pattern was worn right off. I was only sad for a moment, because...CHALLENGE!!!
First step was to scrub down the metal pieces. I used find sandpaper, steel wool and finally silver spray paint.
Then I painted a coat of primer on top of that cracked ice pattern laminate table top from the 50's or 60's. I know, it was hard for me too. Awww, it's ok--come here sweetie. There-there, sometimes we just need to let go. That poor cracked ice was never going to be right again.
Then I found some pretty fabric at the store. Yes, FABRIC! Hello Mod Podge! (Does anyone else call it MODGE PODGE? No? Me neither.... eh hemmm...)
So basically, I glued it on and then applied a layer of

So, now I'm on the hunt for some chairs. Ideally, I'd love to find four matching vinyl chairs to reupholster, but I'm thinking four mismatched chairs painted the same blue as the flowers would be cute too. We'll see!
Thanks for stopping in!
