This gorgeous detailed table was found in the op shop longing for a loving home. I bought her for $15 and carted her home…

So begins the distressing. Distressing gives the piece a worn and aged look. Giving the piece a story and showing where the piece would natural age and wear. I love distressing a piece but I prefer to call it antiquing because of my need for perfection I tend to give the pieces less of a distressed look. Here I painted her with two coats of wheatfield white. Distressed lightly with sandpaper and finally made a staining medium using half coffee brown paint and half water sponged in and brushed into corners.

Thank you for viewing my blog. I am a mother of two beautiful girls and passionate about creating a fabulous space to be inspired by everyday. Strong believer in anything is possible if you keep tremendously interested in it and love and believe in yourself.... I made my blog as a way of helping others get inspired and also be inspired by others creations. I love finding old, boring pieces of furniture and giving it back its former glory.... to tell its story once again. My style is more of boho chic and also love French country. I love crafting. Finding old picture frames and giving it a new purpose and painting anything with detailing and character. Please feel free to ask any questions and I look forward to this world of blogging If you would like to connect me via email connect davina_foon@yahoo.co.nz
