To Name or Not to Name?

This table and chairs have to be one of my favorite makeovers thus far. The table is the perfect size for so many places. It can go in a small kitchen, one your front porch or even in the entryway of your home.

When I first got the set everything was painted a bright gloss white...thank you Annie Sloan. I used the chalk paint again and saved myself a ton of time sanding.

I also thought it might be a good idea to paint the chairs a different color. I don't really know why. It just felt right.

One thing I can tell you is that I'm loving going to the fabric store and digging in the remnants bin. I do this for two reasons. One is to save a bit of cash on the fabric and two because whenever I go into a fabric store my heart starts to race and I see stars in my eyes. I get so overwhelmed. So many choices, so many possibilities. I don't want to have a full blown panic attack in the store so I stick to one section...the cheap bin :-)

Anyway, I chose several pieces of fabric so later I could decide what would work best. I liked this one because I thought it felt "good" with the set, kinda shabby, kinda vintage, kinda fun.

I've noticed some furniture bloggers name their pieces. What do you think? Should I start naming my pieces? I think I'd name this one "Jenny". That's my grandma's nickname and this piece reminds me of her. Let me know what you think!

I'll be posting this in my "Items for Sale" section. Check it out and have a great day!

I've linked up to Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday...head on over to see what others are doing. You will surely find a ton of ideas!

Beautiful table and chairs! I don't name them ALL, but a couple of my pieces just told me theirs. My Ethel buffet for my beloved Great Grandmother, and one of the other dressers caused me to sing "Sweet Caroline" every time I worked on her! Weird, oh, then there's Dolly...that dresser just seemed like a well endowed gal in a western shirt. Guess I name more than I thought! LOL Deb
