These curvy beauties were painted with Annie Sloan’s ‘Duck Egg Blue’ chalk paint.
To achieve even more shabby chic look, we printed a vintage French advert on the top. It is the ad of some sort of parfumes (toilet water). It has been made using stencil method with Annie Sloan’s ‘Old White’ paint.
This Nest is to match perfectly with this Shabby Chic Bureau, we made recently.

Vintage nest of tables before renovation
We are in love with Shabby Chic style for a long, long time. Since we started we were experimenting with many techniques – changing, amending them – trying to find our way. Sometimes we failed, but usually we succeeded.
Here is an example. Two nests of tables, with flat tops. We wanted to achieve an effect of artistic distress. To do it we painted them with two colours of chalk paint, and sanded afterward – what created very interesting texture, unrepeatable on each of them. Playing with a brush, we made a bold texture on first nest, and flat on another one.
If you like this Shabby Chic Nest of Tables, and would like to know details about this method – let us know (use a comment form below the post) or if you like design of the print transfer you have opportunity to buy it in a form of water decal, check on our Water Decal Vintage French Advert .
