French Style Lamp Table with a Restoration Hardware style finish

Hello from wet and windy Sydney! I hope you and your families are all safe and have houses that are in one piece still from this wild weather we are having here. Our trampoline got blown over, and the robinia has lost all it's leaves overnight but at least the garden looks green instead of the mud pit it's been these last few weeks. I was going to lay turf this week but that will have to wait.


I have got stuck back into furniture painting with a vengeance with two bedroom suites being delivered for custom painting on Sunday and Monday. One is a beautiful Berryman suite and the other country pine. Both are going to look so fresh and new once I've finished.

I finished this lovely vintage lamp table yesterday. I painted it with what I call a Restoration Hardware weathered finish. If you are a regular reader here you will know that I've done many pieces similar to this. I think it is a lovely look for this style of furniture.

I painted it using four ASCP colours - first a base of Coco and then layers and washes of French Linen, Paris Grey and White. it is sealed with wax and has a lovely feel to it. The edges have been very slightly distressed.

The side table has a gorgeous shape and offers very good storage. The dovetailed drawer is actually only one drawer but it's nice and deep and would be a great spot to store magazines.

The kids are back at school today, we have no tradesmen or builders in the house and my studio and paint brush are calling me...but coffee first. 

Hope you stay warm and dry and happy.
