I modified the pattern a little bit and made them with soft bottoms instead of cardboard bottoms. I wanted to be able to let the little ones play with it and not worry about the cardboard getting bent. These are just too cute!
While we were at the flea market last Saturday, we spotted this super cool Formica top table and chairs. I LOVE this set! If we didn't already have 4 sets at home (yes, 4 sets!), this one would have come home with us! I love that turquoise blue on the chairs and it was in really fabulous condition! Good thing there was no price on it, because if it had been the right price, I would have bought it, never mind if there was no room in the van, I would have found a way to shove it in there and stick the chairs on the roof and rope 'em down. I would have talked Hubby into coming back for it or something!
4 sets of tables you ask? Well.. we just love stuff from the 50's, and we got our first set from a consignment shop at the old place. Cute little red number with 4 matching chairs. Then a while later, I was at the thrift shop and spotted a cool grey and black set with matching chairs for a cheap $75! We hoped to sell it at our store one day, but our store never came to be and it is sitting in our basement at the moment. Then Hubby's aunt asked us if we wanted Grandma's table and we jumped at it. It's the red table you see in pictures that we use for our dining table. All the chairs were in bad shape, so we weren't able to salvage them, but we pulled chairs from the other sets we have. The fourth table we have is a pink one! How often do you see pink?? 'Nuff said! It came with 2 red chairs that obviously didn't go with it, but I plan to recover the chairs when I get the perfect material to match the table. So, that's how we ended up with 4 sets of 50's tables.
