After my upholsterer worked his magic with the oilcloth I supplied him with, they now look like this:
Ahhh, much better! These are for sale here.
This Queen Anne style mahogany coffee table was tidy enough, just not my style. I love all the carved detail around the top:
It was almost the same to another one (since sold) which I painted like this:
I was pleased with how that one came out but didn't want to do another the same. I had been inspired to do something in just the right shade of grey after seeing this gorgeous hutch at My House of Giggles. Isn't it stunning? Gorgeous shapes, and gorgeous colour. I can see why Tracey couldn't stop staring at her lovely hutch! I went to our local paint shop and looked at some colour chips, and then picked out a couple to look at in A4 size (which gives a much better idea than the tiny little squares on the colour charts). I came home with Resene Raven, and I am thrilled with the colour. This is what it looks like on the table:
This glory box that I posted a picture of last week, is also part way through a transformation to Raven grey as well.....reveal coming soon!
