Ice Cream Table & Chairs

Source: The Daily Quotes
You might remember me mentioning last weekend that I had an opportunity to buy an ice cream table and chair set. Well, I did....and here it is!
I actually have 4 chairs, but only room for 2 in the room I have it set up temporarily. I plan to put it on my porch when we get it built. Isn't is adorable? I got it for such a steal....especially when you price them online! Mine only cost me $50....that's only $10 per piece! I am one happy camper..:) It has no maker's mark anywhere on it so I don't know how old it is, but I'm guessing it's at least 50 or 60 years old. It is in great shape....one of the chair seats has a crack in it but that's it. I'm debating on painting it. I was thinking of painting the table base white and painting each of the chairs a different color....orange, lime, pink, and sunny yellow! I also might cover the seats with padding and cute fabric.....but I'm still debating! 


I decided to put some of my ice cream dishes on the table for the pictures, along with a sweet decorative ceramic ice cream plate. Below you can see some of my ice cream dishes. The largest ones are very old and were given to me by my Aunt Loretta. I have 6 of them. I have 4 of the mid-sized ones, and two of the smallest ones. They are so little! I found them at a yard sale a while back and couldn't pass them by!


I absolutely love these little pedestal ice cream bowls. They are by Seal Test Ice Cream and are from the 1950's or 60's. I got these for a mere fifteen cents each at a yard sale a couple of years ago and  I am still on the look-out for at least one more of them. Aren't they the sweetest little things?


Here's another shot....
