New Table for the New Year

Happy New Year and New Week.
I wanted to share with you the re love of the small table and chairs.

This is where I had my Christmas tree.  It was so pretty in front of the bay window in the corner of my living room.  This is the space I was hoping to achieve a small eating area in the living space.

This was the table I purchased a few months back from my friend Janet that owns and operates Lucky Junk.  It is such a cute table and I really would have liked to keep it in the natural wood.  The top even with sanding just was not working.

I tried to just paint the top of the table white but it looked too funky.  Forgot to take a picture to show!  The whole table got painted legs and all into my signature white.

Here is how it turned out.

It blends in nicely with all my other white furniture.

Excuse my wrinkles on the slipcovers.  I do not iron lol!
They will work themselves out as we sit on the chairs.
Today was a gray and snowy cold day.  I love this room when the sunshine is out.  It fills the room with lots of pretty brightness and warmth.  Not today :(
Now we have a little place to sit and have coffee and tea and look out to the front yard.
I have a real issue with blocking the bay window so I think with keeping the table and chairs like this it does not block the window.

We were promised sunshine this afternoon but so far the sun has not come out.  I do not mind the snow and cold it is these long winter days with no sunshine that get to me!  
Have a great new week.

  1. You made it work my friend. It is the right size and it gives you just enough room to navigate the room and enough space to sit, eat and have a cuppa. Cozy for sure!

  3. This table is adorable and it's perfect in your window spot! I think the white paint is by far the best!

  4. It looks beautiful!! It's so fresh and bright, even in the snow. I can only imagine how pretty it looks in the sunshine. You know I've always wanted to ask you, what exactly is your signature white paint? What do you use? It obviously works very well and has staying power. Do tell! xo

  5. It is perfect. Well done as always!

    I am with you, if I do not have sun for several days.. oh boy, do I start to get down. I love the SUN. And I tell it THANK YOU when it shines bright after several days of gloom. ;-)

  7. Everything is white! Even the snow outside is cooperating. I would've kept it natural but it does look clean and fresh. It's a cute table. Hope you get a sunny day soon.

  8. That corner is the perfect place to show off so many things. The tree was perfect and show is the table and chairs. I like to look out the window when I drink my coffee too. Great idea.

  14. The table is so beautiful white. It blends into the surroundings so much better. You will enjoy sitting there when summer is here and you have flowers in the front yard.

  15. OMGoodness,, Kris, I love it! I think the all white is perfect, and it will reflect light around your room. I also like the placement as the table and chairs don't block your window. I like the wrinkles: very shabby chic.

  16. Happy New Year, Kris! I hope you had a nice Christmas break. The table and chairs is the perfect size and placement for your bay window and looks to be a nice bright spot to enjoy your morning coffee. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us this year. Hugs from Canada xo

  17. Such pretty slip covers. Do you do the painting of all the things, or does Terry. I used to paint, but now I leave it up to my husband.

    1. Both of us paint. I have to admit that Terry does most of the painting of furniture. He has the patience to do it but I still paint too! Hope you are doing well. I have not seen you in a long time. Thanks for stopping by. xoxo

  18. Adorable! It looks perfect for that spot - just the right size and being all white fits in perfectly. Very nice! 😊Cecilia

  19. Kris: Perfection! It looks like it is in the right spot and I'm glad you painted it all white. I love sitting by a window and dreaming when I'm eating. 3 very best things. Good job well done..Stay well..xxoJudy

  20. Very nice. Will 2 bump knees?

    1. We usually do not bump knees so far.  We can pull the table out with the space there and it fits two people nicely.  It is position like that to look neat but we can pull it into the room more when we use it.  Happy New Week. xoxo

  21. Happy new year Kris. I love this pretty little table you painted. It looks just perfect painted all white and it looks great with the chairs. What kind of paint and color did you use? Did you use primer or does the paint come with primmer already in the mix? You are the painting queen! Hope you have a nice week.

    1. I use Behr white cabinet paint and I do believe it has primer in it. I love cabinet paint because it is completely washable. Happy New Year.

  22. Love it Kris! That white paint is so bright and the table looks brand new! Love where you put it. I can imagine sitting there reading my book and drinking tea. Now it just needs that pretty blue rug you used to have in that space, or a smaller one. I always did love that blue (checked?) rug! As usual, you guys worked your magic! Marilyn

  24. I absolutely love it Kris. So fresh, so inviting and so beautiful. You are so gifted and talented. Lord, took me forever to get a new tablescape going after I put away the Christmas. I am getting slower these days. LOL! Wishing you a wonderful, healthy, New Year. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  25. Looks great in that spot. Have you and the hubs used the table and chairs yet? Tea time?

  26. That looks great Kris! I could see me using my iPad sitting there with a cup of coffee!

  27. BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I like the paint on the table and what an amazing spot to eat a meal.

  28. Hi Kris! Your table and chairs are darling - you always have that magic touch! Jane

  29. Very pretty, Kris. That window is spectacular, and the table and chairs are the frosting on that lovely cake. :) Now you can really enjoy that spot. I know what you mean about overcast, gloomy days. We had so many on those in Oregon over the winter. So depressing. This is one thing I love about Colorado. Just about every day in the winter we have at least an hour or two of full sunshine. Usually much, much more. I find I deal with the winters much better here because there is more sunlight. Hugs and much love for the new year. Nancy

  30. Hi Kris - it all looks perfect! It is much more 'you' and it still leaves plenty of room, so as not to block your beautiful bay window. Hoping that the sun comes out soon. Hugs, Gilly

  31. I'm trying to rearrange my kitchen table and I have and love white also.
    Looking for a drop down table
    You give me inspiration to paint anything white

  32. I love it-it is perfect painted white. I didn't realize how big it was-I thought it was coffee table sized. This is a great size for that window with the chairs. Nice job- as always.
    Did you ever say what color white you use? I like how bright and crisp it looks. xo Diana

  33. Kris,
    It is just perfect!!! Such a charming space!! Just like you said, we have different tastes...I like color and you love white but that does not mean we can not appreciate each other's homes!! Too bad this can not be applied to Politic in this Country.....Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
    Hugs,
    Deb

  34. Very pretty! Will you eat some meals there or will it be used as a place just to sit and chat or have a cup of coffee?

  35. I don't iron either and I appreciate your keeping it real! It really is lovely -- I like the idea of having that little corner with all that beautiful light! I could see myself turning that into my little art table, with all that great light shining in. It looks quite perfect there. All good wishes for a happy new year! ~ jeanie from Marmelade Gypsy
