When you have multiple children, furniture that you use year after year can get really beat up.  In order to give new life to a piece, you can update kids' furniture with paint and a new style. Wooden table and chairs for kids
We bought this little wooden table for my older kids a few years ago, and even though they outgrew it, my youngest still uses it all the time. It is pretty banged up and could definitely use a refresh.

I wanted to try the Devine Horizon color  by Vaslpar on this table and chairs.  It is a super light blue, perfect for my son.  I also wanted to make the table set a little more sophisticated so I thought paint dipping the legs in a metallic color would look great.  I used the Devine Metals paint in Devine Penny.

How to Paint with Devine Color by Valspar

First I needed to remove all the oil and crayon form the table and rough up the finish, so I sanded the entire surface of the table and chairs.

Next I used a brush and roller for my first coat.  Since the paint has primer already included I didn’t need a separate primer.  After the first layer was dry I used a paint sprayer to add a few more thin coats and give the set a nice even finish.  Painting with valspar devine color
Once the paint was dry I moved on to paint dipping the legs.  I use delicate surface painters tape (since the paint was fresh you want to be careful with tape.)Taping off legs for paint dippingNext I added a few coats of the copper. I loved the contrast between the copper and baby blue.
