More upcycled furniture: I have transformed a dark brown hall table into a contemporary focal piece that looks good in any room, not just the hall. This time I didn’t use Frenchic chalk paint, I used Annie Sloan paint instead, the hue is called Louis Blue. And I have lightly distressed the table. Stylised flower heads decorate the table top, I have used hand cut stencils to create them. The table is on display in my studio.
