Caribbean Table For Two

I think the colors of the Caribbean that I experienced in December have just stuck with me.  I can't seem to go away from them as evidenced by this fun, drop-leaf table set I just finished painting.

These colors brighten the cloudiest of days.

I picked this set up on half price day at Sally's--it was light, butcher block style wood with forest green legs and chair sides and rungs.  I base painted it all with Annie Sloan French Linen, mostly because I wasn't sure where I was going with it and the chalkpaint works as a nice primer, albeit an expensive one.

I then added greens and blues to the legs

and to the slats and rungs on the chairs.  I sanded a little when done, let some of the forest green show through, and sprayed a clear coat on all of it.

Wouldn't this be great for a first apartment or on a covered porch?
