Shabby Chic Oval Coffee Table no. 01


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.


height: 39cm
top: 116cm x 70cm

For printing we have used vintage French advert, by courtesy of
The technique we used this time is a screen printing.

Annie Sloan – ‘Old White’ chalk paint

Top – clear matt polyurethane varnish
Base & legs – Annie Sloan’s Clear and Dark Waxes


Vintage Shabby Chic Nest of Tables no. 14


Queen Anne style Vintage Shabby Chic Nest of Tables

Here you can see another Vintage Shabby Chic Nesto of Tables. This one we decided to make in our classical style using Annie Sloan’s paints and sanding paper.

You could see this Nest previously in our Waiting Room, now the pictures of this piece before our work are attached at the bottom of this page.

For printing on each of table top we have used our own design of Haute Couture – French vintage-like advert. We used a water decal technique to transfer the print (you can see how to make it in our tutorial on transferring the print onto furniture or wood)
