Just thought I'd show you this little half table that's been in the family for a long time that I painted a while ago. It was my first ever attempt at distressing and waxing over paint!
I don't have a before photo but it had been painted white and then an ugly brown color to make it look like it hadn't actually been painted, when really someone was just too lazy to strip it back!! Yep, that'd be someone I'm related to!!!
So here it is:
And a little close up, (I was experimenting with my camera!!)
I really enjoyed painting this one as I learnt a lot. I'm not sure where to put it now though, it currently resides in our guest bedroom. It's a little too frenchy/romantic/olde world for my current taste! I do like it, I just need to work out how to style it a bit more contemporary! BTW the jug and dish are also family heirlooms!
