Two Toned Hall Table

I finished this hall table the other day.  I wasn't too sure about it once I'd finished it as it is a little ornate for my liking.  But I do think it looks pretty.

Here's how it looked when I got it at at the auctions...


It looks quite ok in the photo, but up close the top was in pretty bad shape.  So I stripped the top and started from scratch by staining it again.  I also painted the bottom half in a nice blue colour that I mixed myself.






My Mum is in love with this table but I think she'll be out on the street if she brings anymore of my furniture home.  She's already ditched their entire bedroom suite (except the bed) to replace it with my stuff.

As I said, it doesn't really lend itself to the style of my house so I'll be listing this one for sale.




I will be a single mother for the next few weeks as my husband is going interstate for work.  Therefore I may be a little slack with the blogging for a while.  Although I am still working on the dollhouse so I will have some photos soon.

I hope you all have a fantastic day :)
