Latest Painting Project – Oval Dining Table Gustavian Style.

I’ve mentioned before my love for a drop leaf table as they are such versatile pieces.

Not only do they make great space saving dining tables but they also look fabulous placed behind sofas and in hallways as console tables.

This particular table is a favourite of mine as it is oval in shape and has beautiful deep leaves that hide the legs when they are folded away.

As the table is oak I chose a Gustavian style paint effect as the grain of the wood absorbs the pale grey wash beautifully against the Belgian Stone chalk paint base.

I then finished the whole piece with white wax.

Seats up to 8 people.

Currently for sale £375.00

Latest Painting Project – Hall Table.

I painted this elegant hall table using a bespoke mix of chalk paints to create this lovely grey/blue colour which I then finished with both clear and black wax.

The black wax enhances the lovely details such as the reeded legs and curved front drawer.

A great paint colour that works with most colour schemes.

Drop Leaf Tables.

One of my next painting projects is a lovely oak drop leaf table.

It has great proportions when folded as the leaf almost reaches the floor covering the legs making it a stylish piece of furniture on which to display lamps etc.

Here are a few styling ideas for drop leaf tables:
