One of my favorite things to paint were children's table and chair sets. I had the best woodman...who was also super affordable, which made painting them cost effective. Well, that is cost effective for someone who basically worked for $2 per hour. Let me tell you folks, crafting has got to be a business you love, not one you plan to come a millionaire from.
Anywho...thought I would share a few photos of those table and chair sets.
This one was a commission. The mom wanted it to match her daughter's room and to feature the Bible verse.
I saw the Moon and the Moon saw Me.
God bless the Moon and God bless Me.
Mary, Mary quite contrary. How does your garden grow?
This set was done to match all the fabric in two little girl's room.
This piece was a chair only, but I always thought a table to match would have been just right.
This set is my all time favorite. It has the words of Old McDonald painted around the edge of the table.
I've always regretted selling this one. I would paint another for my grandkids, but the old guy that made them hasn't been in the business for years. Besides that a nice set like this unfinished would cost a lot more than the $40 he used to charge. It would probably cost more than what I used to sell them for.
I made a couple more sets, a Noah's Ark and some tables with ribbons and flowers, but I guess I forgot to take photos of them. I tried to take pictures of most of the major things I made because I was afraid I wouldn't remember how to paint it if I wanted to do it again.
I painted walls too. I'll show you those photos another day if you like.
Cleaning the house today to get ready for the baby shower Sunday. Baby is due a week from Saturday. It won't be long now!
