Shabby Chic Oval Coffee Table with White French Print

Let me introduce you another piece salved from destruction – a Shabby Chic Oval Table. Quite short, however with large top.

This time we decided to leave the top surface visible. After complete removal of old varnish, just two layers of natural oak wood stain revealed beauty of veneer. This contrasts in a marvellous way with the bottom part and legs painted with Annie Sloan’s ‘Old White’. To make this work complete, we printed old white Vintage French Advert (Vins & Spiritueux), by courtesy of Graphics Fairy.

The top is finished with durable polyurethane varnish, all spilled coffee will be easily wiped with damp cloth. The bottom part is covered with two layers of Annie Sloan’s Waxes – clear and dark.
