Little Table and Chair Makeover

Just a simple makeover for this little child size table and chair that I picked up at Salvation Army for $4.98.  It was really in good shape to begin with.

I cleaned it and gave it a light sanding.  Removed some stickers from the top of the chair and taped off the tabletop and the seat of the chair.

I then just used the Antique Walnut gel stain that I used on my guest bedroom side tables.  Two coats was good and two coats of spray poly.

Now I have a cute little table for my granddaughter to sit at when she’s over!  I put it in our home office next to Pop Pop’s desk.  But it is easily movable should we want to bring it into another room.

I found some scrap fabric to maybe make a little seat cushion for the chair.

Hi Kathy,

You scored again! The child's set is so cute and you made it even cuter.

I want to try the gel stain on my son's dresser. I wonder if it works on darker stained wood.

The dark surround really set this little gem off so much better. Great project.
