A Little Pine Coffee Table and a Sporty Little Number

Thank you for stopping by, I have a little Pine Coffee table that I have given some new life.
I picked the table up at my local Red Cross charity shop and it was just a plain pine table that looked a little sad and old(but not in the good way)

This was a very simple little revamp, The legs and shelf were given a couple of coats of Decoarts chalk finish paint in Whisper, The top of the table was sanded back with my electric sander to get rid of any marks and the horrible golden varnish.I started with a coarse grade paper and finished of with a fine grade to get a nice smooth finish. To protect and seal everything I used the Decoart Ultra Matte varnish from the chalk finish line.This has left the wood looking lovely and pale and fresh.

The second table was also picked up in the Red Cross shop and I was inspired by a couple of stools I found on the Decoart site made by Tanya, you can find her blog HERE.

I went for another clean look rather than the distressed style of shabby chic, I used Decoarts Chalk Finish in Escape, I really love this colour now that I have used it, I applied a couple of coats of Escape and using Stencil tape I masked of my lines and painted using Lace for the stripes.
Using the Number stencil from the Chalk line I stencilled the number in Relic and finished of by coating with the Soft Satin varnish.

Thanks as always for stopping by. xxx
