Welcome To The 31st Masterpiece Monday

Hi there! I'm pleased to announce that I've finished one of my bigger painting projects, which I've scheduled myself for this Summer. Whew! This one was not fun or easy due to the many details, especially on the chairs. But where there's a will, there's a way right?

 Here is a before picture of the chairs, I used only two in the after shot for fun, so all four chairs would be different. :O)
 I started to paint the table, then realized that I needed a before shot. Please excuse the blurriness, but you get the idea.
 Now I don't need to use slipcovers or tablecloths unless I want to. I recovered the seats in burlap.
 The chair below was painted a long time ago so all I had to do was add burlap.


 Do you like my GW plates? I think they're originally from Target. They remind me of the ocean.


 I brought out my craft table metal chair and plopped a burlap pillow on the seat. what'a ya think?







There ya go. Now I need to get stated on the next painting project. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been creating this week!

I'm linking this week to White Wednesday at Faded Charm and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch

Mary that is gorgeous! Did you use chalk paint? I am tackling a project this weekend and I get the not fun part! Your room is absolutely stunning, worth the work. The burlap works great for the seat covers.

Mary, This looks fantastic! I love it white! As soon as I get the kids in school I am going to get my dining room chairs white. Right now I can not get much done beyond 10 minutes. Lol I will get my post ready and come over and join you!

It is amazing how much more fresh the dining area feels with the chairs and table painted white! You did a wonderful job. The plates are just perfect to go with the other colors in the room. I love all your candles are other accessories.

Oh I so want to paint my dining table. Did you put some type of sealant in top of it. I am so afraid of it chipping if we use it without a table cloth.

Hi Mary, your mixture of chairs is wonderful and you did a great job with your painted finish effects. Fabulous accessories in the room too, sort of like keeping it real with a little bit of bling (flip flops & pearls), my favorite look! Thank you for hostessing ~ Diane

Absolutely love your table, chairs and tablescape!!! Everything is so beautiful. I have the same picture that you have on your wall, only I've never gotten mine hung. You've inspired me to get it matted and on the wall.
