One man’s trash


I found this monster of a table at the bootsale.  It was dark, stained and very, very heavy solid
wood.  The top was beyond redemption but I could immediately see the
potential with all the detail to the underside and legs.

When I looked at the piece I imagined a wonderful ocean swept piece of furniture sitting perfectly in a beachside retreat.

After a LOT of sanding, several coats of white paint, a top coat of
beautiful clouded sky from the Origins range by Dulux, some gently rubbing
down and waxing I am really, really pleased with the result and if it
doesn’t sell.  I’m keeping it !

    I adore this table! I live in St Ives, and am tempted to make the drive to your shop in Dartmouth (?). I have followed you via facebook for a while. Very inspiring. Leanne xx
