"Mickey Mouse Clubhouse...Come Inside, It's Fun Inside"

Lots of our friends are visiting Mickey this week.  We are in the Fl sunshine, but no visits with Mickey for our family this spring break. But I did do a piece, to help us get our fill of Mickey at our house.  Another custom piece for the new shop.  It will find it's spot in the kid's corner of the shop, and hopefully other kids will fall in love with it as much as my little guy did.

The table has  a fun little basket in the middle, my kids decided it was the garbage spot.  Guessing something more fun than that will be in it at the store.

I gave it a light sand to degloss.   Tightened a few screws.  Coated with Kilz aerosol primer.  Semi gloss black and candy apple red, classic Mickey colors for the chairs.  Finished them with a light distress and some black and white splatters on the seats.

My client wanted old Mickey comics on the top.  I ended up finding an old "Year with Mickey" book at Salvation Army that worked out great.  The book had lots of fun pictures of all the different holidays throughout the  year.  I decoupaged the top clockwise to the calendar year around the table.  I finished the legs with the same paint as the chairs.  I protected the top with a high gloss clear coat with lots of thin layers to protect all those Mickeys.

My kids were sad to see this go, I hope it makes lots of others happy!
