This cute little table belongs to my son's Nursery School teacher. She knew I did a bit of painting and asked me if I could turn this into something with a 'french country' feel.
I didn't take and 'during' photos (sorry!) but first I washed it, then primed it with smooth surface sealer. Then gave it two coats of Resene Quarter Ash. The table previously had a little bit of a metallic finish and I decided to keep a bit of that look, so antiqued it using test pots of Resene Tea and Resene Bedrock. I am really pleased with how it turned out, but not sure that the subtle antiqued effect shows up so well in photos...here we go...
