Red Redo and ME Giveaway



I love Mary Englebreit and I know some of you do too. I'm in the mood for an ME Giveaway!I made this Christmas cutie-she looks kind of MEish.
This is a little coaster set and crocheted doily in Christmas colors.
An ME tin set.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll put you in the drawing. I'll draw a winner on Saturday at 6:00 P.M. So get the word out all you ME lovers! Now on to other things. I told you I'd show you my before and after for my continuing mini redos. These chairs were in my dining room-they are really old and I was getting tired of them. I'd looked around for new kitchen chairs, and couldn't find anything I liked. SO I decided to switch my kitchen and dining chairs.
Here's the tired old kitchen table. I needed something with a little personality...so with a little paint magic...
Here's the "new" set. I painted the table white and aged it a little and painted the chairs red.
I think it will do the trick. Also goes pretty well for Christmas decor, that I'll be sharing soon, and goes great for Rednesday. Go check out It's A Very Cherry World to enjoy some more reds.
Happy Rednesday!
Leslie

  17. Hi Leslie!
    Your peg girl is darling, so precious! Please put my name in the hat for your giveaway. :)
    Your redo is great, I love your white table and red chairs. I'm trying to bring the hubs around to our painting our kitchen table white - I love the honey gold pine too but it doesn't go with our kitchen since we painted.
    Happy Rednesday!

  23. I am not sure you have seen any of my furniture pieces yet....I love using red paint. I am not afraid to paint a wooden piece. It gives things new life, just like your table and chairs. Good job.
