I love to visit antique shops and junk yards because you find amazing furniture at fantastic prices.
I found this table at a place called Aladdin's Cave in London. It cost £20 (just over $30). I thought it was a bargain.
The base of this stool is beautiful!
I would have liked to paint the bottom a creamy colour and the top parma gray (by Farrow & Ball) but I didn't want to buy lots of paint so I decided to settle for just parma gray.
I didn't use a primer at all and the spent about 60 seconds sanding the table. It didn't seem to need it. I just slapped on two layers of paint on the base and three coats on the very top.
It was very quick and easy and the result is a sight for sore eyes.
