For Nora and Lucy!

I try to make Thanksgiving weekend my cutoff date for furniture painting projects. After that, it's time for the cars to reclaim the garage for winter. But this year, I had to fit in one more project for two special little girls ~ Nora and Lucy. Their mom Meghan is one of our favorite Elizabeth & Co. customers. Rumor had it that Santa might be delivering a kitchen set for the girls, so of course they would also need a table and chairs too.


All the pieces were found separately. But in their fresh beachy colors,
they work beautifully together.


The table is painted with my favorite Buttermilk shade of milk paint, then fun stripes were added with Old White, Louis Blue and Provence chalk paint.



The chairs were also painted Provence.
Seriously, how cute are these curvy chairs?



Then all the pieces were lightly distressed and waxed.



Delivery was made on December 23rd.
I made it before Santa!



Merry Christmas to two of my favorite little girls!


And that's it, my last furniture project for 2011!
