Lisa from Recreated Designs used two of our limited edition colors, Ocean Breeze and Mermaid’s Tale to give this children’s set a sweet, girly look!

I was given this little table quite awhile ago and, even though it was meant to be an end table, it was the perfect size to be turned into a child’s table. I began looking for a couple of chairs to go with it (that proved to be a much more daunting task than expected!) and finally found this little set of badly worn and beaten up chairs.

I wanted the set to be fun and whimsical, to match my niece’s personality (the future recipient of the set), and have a chalkboard top. I have completely fallen in love with the colours in the Country Chic Paint Spring/Summer line so chose Mermaid’s Tale (a pretty purple-y lilac colour) and Ocean Breeze (a soft, cream blue).

To contrast the table and chairs, I used the Mermaid’s Tale on the table base, and then the Ocean Breeze on the chairs. The colours complement each other so well it was like they were made to go together 😉

To add something fanciful to the chairs, and pull in the purple from the table, I painted flowers on the front and seat of the little chairs using the Mermaid’s Tale. These little flowers are so easy to paint and complemented the chairs perfectly.

To finish the sweet little set, I gave the top of the table two coats of Chalkboard paint and it is now ready for hours of enjoyment and fun!
