Marietta Booth Update

Finally! After a month of more of not being able to do much in our booths as Larry recovered from knee surgery, we got back to it. Here's a look at the changes we made to our Marietta booths.

Don't you love these white leather Chromcraft chairs? I think they may have been reupholstered, as the only ones I can find online are brown. These are just so cool. I painted and stenciled the little table between them. Thanks to Joy at A Vintage Green for introducing me to the buffalo check stencil!

White and chrome seemed to be a theme.

This old chair had a large white water stain on the seat. After cleaning that and sanding, I just rubbed brown paint over the seat and dark-waxed it. It came out beautifully, the new paint a perfect match for the old finish. Rubbing in the paint made it act more like stain.

I'm thinking spring! Lots of spring colors here. I painted and distressed, then glazed the table with dark glaze and finished it up with clear wax on the base and General Finishes' Flat Out Flat polyurethane for the top.

Your booths looks so inviting. I love Buffalo Check - looks great with the white/chrome chairs. I started adding spring color groupings too.

I love it all. The jadite, the chrome, painted/stenciled tables and what is the wooden rack somewhere in the middle of the photos? Glad Larry is getting along good with his new knee.

That's a poultry crate, Nance, used for transporting chickens, etc. People often use them for decor or even coffee tables.

I like It! We are having more cold and snow here in Iowa. I hope you are warming there.
