I’m talking about my 2½year old granddaughter, Sofi.

I stenciled her little table and painted her chair….she doesn’t like change….unless it’s her idea.

I could be in big trouble.

Today is furniture theme day and the theme is “flowers”.


table and chair project Petticoat Junktion

I bought the kid’s table months ago.

I don’t even remember where it came from.

The chair came from a local antique/flea market shop.

The table is in the Owen Workshop and Sofi uses it to paint her masterpieces.

The chair has been with her desk in the house.

She noticed the chair had been replaced with another but we were able to gloss over that and move on!


stencils and paint for project Petticoat Junktion

I selected a few stencils and a new can of Krylon White Gloss paint.


stencil brush and paint Petticoat Junktion

Paint goes a long way when stenciling so I poured a little paint on a paper plate then dipped the brush in the paint and wiped most of the paint off on a paper towel.

The secret to stenciling is a dry brush….read a complete tutorial by clicking here.


stenciling with  Petticoat Junktion

I planned to use different flower designs but after contemplating (big word) it for a while I decided just to use two different sizes of the same design.

I stenciled them on willy-nilly, no measuring or anything.


childs chair Petticoat Junktion

Chairs are not my favorite thing to paint so I usually try to give them a coat of spray paint before I brush on a coat of paint.

The spray paint gets into all the joints better.

I used the same white Krylon paint that I used for the stenciling.

The JTS got a hold of the camera.

There’s a reason I don’t post photos of myself working on projects in the workshop.

I distressed the chair and the green paint shows through a little.

I thought the original finish on the table would work well with the white flowers…and I was right Smile

My first thought was to give the table an overall paint job in a bright color and stencil bright flowers all over it.

update 5/23/2014

Sofi likes her table.

I wasn’t there when she first saw the table but I’m told she put both hands over her mouth and said “I can’t believe it”….she’s not dramatic at all :-)

She didn’t want me to take her picture so I had to sneak around to get this one.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,

    i really luv this set!!! i did almost the same thing with a chair that a neighbor gave me….it was old and beat up so, i painted the whole chair black and applied gold polka dots on the seat and the top piece …luv it!

  12. Adorable, I’m sure she’ll love it! I’m glad you didn’t paint the whole table, the darkness looks great against the white daisies. The chair looks perfectly chippy too. :)

  13. Oh my goodness, Kathy! I LOVE this! The daisies look fantastic against the original top. Your granddaughter has to love this! I have a similar table with two chairs that I bought for my three year old son recently and I am still undecided on what to do with it. SO many possibilities :)

    Isn’t it great to be a gram? I love doing things for my grands and great-grands. I follow Ana White, using her plans to build them things then decorating them. Now I’ll be following you for ideas too. Keep up the good work.

    • Kathy Owen says:

      Thanks Pam. Anna has a kids playhouse plan that I’m thinking for doing. I’m not much on building things so wish me luck. Thanks for the nice comment!!!

  18. Pam Allen says:

    Wow!Thanks Kathy,you truly made my day. I have never has anyone respond on a blog before and it felt like someone famous wrote me a note. The first time I picked up a hammer and made something I couldn’t afford otherwise, was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I do wish you luck, but I know with perseverance we women can accomplish anything. By the way when I taught myself to woodwork I was 50 something. I’m now 65 and still have the passion.

    • Kathy Owen says:

      You are too funny Pam! You have inspired me to build something. I will be 60 in less than a month. YOu’re only as old as you feel…right…:-)
