before and after...
On the weekend I picked up this table and chairs form the swap-meet carpark sale for only $5 but you can pick up the set new from Ikea for $30. It was looking pretty skanky in it's "pre-loved" condition, complete with scribble and a twilight sticker, but I knew exactly how I would save it.
It was an easy project. I simply took apart the set using an allen key and glued down vintage wallpaper onto the seats and table top. I think it turned out a treat!!
If you could see my house right now, you would probably think that maybe I should be spending my time giving the place a clean rather than faffing around with making-over a table and chairs with my small person... SERIOUSLY, the house is trashed. There are piles upon piles upon piles of stuff around here. It will need to be sorted out this evening if I am to get any work done tomorrow. It will have to wait until I have finished my cuppa. And maybe close my eyes for 10 minutes.
