French script side table

Here I have a little side/lamp table. I picked this up for FREE on the side of the street; I have had a lot of luck lately with finding little treasures. After completing my typography coffee table, I became addicted to transferring. I decided this piece would be perfect for a little French script.

I painted the top in my home made chalk paint (instructions coming soon). I then once again downloaded the script from The graphics Fairy, and transferred it (you can read how I transfer here). I then distressed like crazy...

This was one of the quickest pieces I have ever completed, love how fast chalk paint drys !!

Here are some of the finished pictures (once again no before picture, new years resolution take before pictures !!!! )

Queen Anne Dining

I have my first piece of 2012 to reveal. This Queen Anne dining table & chairs was purchased for $50 a while ago, and it has been sitting in the garage for months now. This piece is the highest price I have ever paid for a piece of furniture; I think that's why I was so resistant to start it. Yesterday was the day I decided this baby was coming out of the garage. 

Don't get me wrong the piece was originally in beautiful shape, besides from the ugly red velvet upholstery. I was sure I took a before picture, but I can’t seem to find it. Which sucks, that’s my favourite part (looking at the before & afters). I guess I will just give you all the after shots...

I left the table top in its original state

I painted the lower half in Dulux Antique White

The chairs were also painted, and reupholstered with a neutral hessian fabric

Look at the beautiful detail on the chairs

I am still undecided, whether I should leave the table top stained or paint it white? I feel as though something is missing… Or I might just be overthinking it. Other than that I love this piece, its up for sale now !!
