To create the table and chairs set you will need:

  •  A set of cheap brown plastic 1:48 scale furniture.
  • Optional:  with sharp craft knife, cut out the pieces running across lower part of chair legs -- or leave chairs as is.

  • To obtain a nice, even finish, use tweezers to hold each chair by one leg and completely dip it in latex enamel paint.
  • Gently, shake chair to allow excess paint to drain back in the can. If necessary, gently blow on the chair to clear any clogged spaces.

  • Find a round mosaic design and reduce it to a 3/4" circumference in your favorite desktop publishing program.
  • Print out.  Cut out, and glue onto top of table. 
  • Variations:  Instead of printouts, you can paint on a faux marble finish, use faux finish paper (from scrapbook store), or cutouts from home design magazine ads.
