Kid table and chairs...

Hi Everyone!  I've been busy getting ready for the Clarinda Craft Carnival which is this Saturday.  I have a couple of projects yet to finish and only two more nights to get them done.  It doesn't matter how early I start, I always have a couple of projects that aren't finished until the night before...someday I will be finished the weekend before!  But in my defense, I have also been getting ready for my Holiday Open House which is happening November 9th and 10th.
A couple of weeks ago I showed you a peek of the kid's table I was working on...it's finally painted and ready to go and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
 As I was building it, it screamed little girl because of the turned legs....so I decided to paint it white.
 In fact, I painted it gloss white so it would be easy to clean up.
 You can't see it in the picture, but the top looks like a farm table top since I pieced the boards together with pocket screws from the underside.
 I like the chairs.  They are sturdy...I've tried them out....
....and I like how the front legs of the chairs match the table.  If I were to make this for a little boy, then I would make it with straight legs on the table and chairs.  I will be taking this to the fair this weekend and hopefully it will find a new home.  What color would you have painted it?  Thanks for stopping by.
