A Birthday Gift Project Completed

Remember how I was fixing up a little table and chairs for Farm Girl's birthday?

 It stared out with two chairs like this and a small table.
Then I worked on fixing them up like I talked about in this post,

Well, here's the update...

For some reason I didn't take a "before" of the table, but basically it was scratched up, a grayish, brownish color, with chipped paint. Here's the "after"

I think it turned out pretty well, and I'm sure she will like it. I found a toy tea set at a second hand store that was brand new, but the box was damaged, so I think I will just take it out of the box and set it up on the table and give it all to her that way.

Right now we have some salt dough ornaments in the oven, and I'm thinking maybe we'll make some bird seed ornaments this weekend (if the kids have settled down enough after all the birthday excitement!). 

Are you making anything fun this weekend?


  1. That turned out really nice and I love the fabric! It will be perfect with the tea set!
    Not making anything fun this weekend but I'm excited to get my new kitchen faucet installed tomorrow. :)

    1. Thanks Candy! Are you remodeling or just needed a new faucet? I would be excited about a new faucet too! By the way, those pecan spice waffles are calling my name!

  2. How sweet..I can imagine many parties being spent around this little table.

  3. What a nice job you did Jody! The table and chairs turned out so cute! What a nice gift for a child! Thanks for sharing! We don't have any projects going on this weekend but I hope to after Thanksgiving! Have a nice weekend! Blessings from Bama!

    1. Thank you Felecia! I keep thinking maybe things will slow down some after Thanksgiving and I'll get more done too. Have a great weekend!
