French Provincial Hall table from a re-purposed sewing table

I knew this old sewing table had good bones when I found it, lovely details on the legs and top, just old and tired.

We removed the sewing machine, which was neither pretty or vintage and only added a massive weight to the table.

I've been wanting to try a new vintage paint colour called River rock out for ages and I thought this piece was perfect. It's a soft muddy olive green, very French feeling and it matched in perfectly with the Floral Catalogue transfer. This colour took lots of distressing well; to show the very dark stained wood underneath, for a very shabby look, like it has been around for years, perfect! The little drawer only pulls out enough to hold some keys or similar, but it is a great little size for an entrance way or hall. Now available at our Vintage Shoppe in Tauranga.

    Hi Sue, paint is your first layer, then your transfer and then your clearcoat. This will then protect your painted piece and the transfer. It will make it more robust. Carla x

    Hello. Does the Clearcoat Lowsheen cover the transfer as well as the painted surface? Thank you.
