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.

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:





Latest Painting Project – Grey Oval Dining Table.

This sweet drop leaf, oval dining table is painted using a beautiful subtle grey called After Rain.

It was then lightly distressed and finished with a matt varnish that is water resistant.

I particularly love the scalloped edging on the table sides so that your knees fit comfortably underneath.

Reeded, splayed legs with brass claw feet.

This compact size also lends itself as a console table either in a hallway or behind a sofa.
