Available console hall tables and a new start

Hi everyone, I've been missing in action as we've made a few changes. Jonty's changing schools (to where he is going to high school next year, they are taking him early in a high achievers class) and last week was a week of school tours and uniform fittings.  Very exciting times for him and he's so thrilled and looking forward to an academic challenge for the rest of the year.




and on the furniture front....

I've also been staying up late to get my work done. One piece that's still available is this console table. It's such a great size and very elegant. As soon as I spied this piece I knew what I wanted to do with it. It actually was an old drop leaf dining table. I removed the leaves (and will use them for another project) and voila it's a lovely console table. Much more practical I think.

Painted in a pale grey and gently distressed. Nice little details very elegant.

I also have a sweet demi-lune console table that I finished yesterday. I painted this in a navy chalk paint (ASCP Napoleonic) then deepened the colour even further with antiquing wax. I just love it.

 This is a lovely simple piece and will look amazing with all your blue and white accessories 💙

Wish us luck for Jonty's new start today. I'm as excited and happy as he is.

  2. I would never have thought about removing the drop leaves! I have three drop leaf tables - now I'm going to investigate doing the same thing! Thanks so much.
