I love this colour combination

What a couple of days it's been on the east coast around Sydney. I hope you are staying safe and dry and without too much damage to your homes.  It seems as though there's no end to the cyclonic weather. I'm staying at home and painting:)

My neighbour gave me a little oak side table when she was recently clearing her house. They are moving up the coast and I'm so sad for their beautiful family to be leaving. We will have to have some family holidays together. Anyway the table is oak but had been previously painted and very heavily distressed. I decided to give it a little frenchy makeover using ASCP Chalk paint.

A colour combination that I think delivers frenchy sophistication is ASCP Graphite on top with the base painted in ASCP Old Ochre. I then used a little dark wax in the crevices to give a little age to the piece.

(this piece has already sold)

I have some gorgeous french style bedsides that I'm going to paint similarly. I think it will work perfectly on them.
