I bought these bedside tables from one of my blog followers who was moving to the UK (thanks Tee!) and they've been sitting in my carport for a few weeks while I decided what to do with them. I finally decided to feature the moulded edges. I'm calling these my Paris Apartment Beside Tables.
I was lucky enough to meet another of my blog readers and fellow furniture painter recently who was moving to France (I'm very jealous!) and she generously gave me three massive boxes of paints, waxes, brushes etc that she couldn't take with her (as well as heaps of lamps, lamp shades etc). I've painted these bedside tables in the Porters Paint Explorer Blue that was she gave me. I was actually quite sad that we only met the weekend before she flew out as we had so much in common and she was so lovely. Thank goodness for blogland where we'll be in touch, no doubt.
I love it when you finally get inspiration for something. I really struggled at first for ideas, especially as I wasn't that keen on the black footings but I think the black hardware sets off the blue/grey and white trim now.
These will be for sale in my booth at The Balmain Road Antique Centre.
I'll be back tomorrow with the french table, it's still not quite perfect....
Have a lovely day. The sun is shining here today!
