White Coffee Table

Today I finished off the little coffee table I bought on the weekend. Painted in Dulux's Lexicon Half strength, distressed and waxed. Photographed with the french chair I painted and reupholstered for my little boy (the matching second one is STILL half finished)

I love this vintage coffee table - very shabby chic / french now. It is so solid and well made and now with a fresh coat of white paint it will brighten any room.  The carved legs are beautiful.

This is now in my booth at the Balmain Road Antiques Centre. Send me a message if your interested in buying it.
