French Provincial Shabby Hall Table

Perfect place for all my teacups!
I'm so happy to finally reveal my latest project as this one seemed to take a little longer than the others.

I saw this little beauty on Gum Tree looking a little worse for wear. And as usual, I forgot to take a real 'before' photo- I realised when I had nearly finished sanding so you can just see the original colour on the left of the drawer.

Here is the 'Before' photo...

I immediately loved the shape and could see the potential. My friend Penny always suggests white legs, timber top so I thought I would go for it. After some sanding I used a spray primer. It's much easier to get into all those nooks and crannies on the legs. Then three coats of my favourite white enamel paint by British Paints, applied with a brush. To finish the piece I used the same cedar stain that I used to finish my turquoise table. Check out my sales page for details of how it could be yours!

I would love to have a whole heap of furniture in this style, but I would love to see in your comments: What dream piece of furniture would you love to own?

And here is the After!
