I bought a cute little vintage kid's table and chair at an online yard sale. Although I liked the mustard yellow color, I didn't think it was right for this set, plus the paint had seen better days. I decided to mix up a custom color chalk paint using Annie Sloan Antibes Green, Aubusson Blue, and some Old White. But I also taped off most of the table top and painted on some chalkboard black, along with a little "racing stripe" in the black just to set it off. To help tie the chair into the table better, I painted the two horizontal slats of the chair in chalkboard, as well as the "X" braces that joined the legs.
I think it came out cute, what do you think?
