This cute little set would be perfect in a child’s room, but would also blend well in other living areas of your home. It didn’t start out that way though…
This was a junk find I picked up this summer. The surface looked like a child had scribbled just about everywhere with markers. I’m thinking the child thought it needed a makeover too.
A lot of elbow grease and every cleaning tool I had in my arsenal got involved in the cleaning. Barkeeper’s Friend was the clear winner and my friend. 😉 I also removed the cloth seat covers and saved them as my pattern for new ones. A little bit of reconstruction on minor details and it was ready to restyle.
I started out with a light base coat. While it would have been fine to leave it that way, it had no personality or style.
I went over everything with a stain to give it that fabulous western finish that I love. Notice that I covered the umbrella holes.
But wait, it needed a little more something-something. Off to my Silhouette and a great western dingbat to cut small stencils. I think the black stenciled imaged give it a playful branding look.
The new chair covers were created from a denim futon cover I had in my stash.
All ready to go for upcoming craft shows.
