Carla's Project

While I was in Brisbane, Carla decided to start giving her furniture a bit of a facelift. It was looking dark and heavy and tired, and she's young and pretty and vibrant, so it just made sense. We decided to start with a big piece - her dining table. Here's Kai helping out with the sanding - he did a great job!

She has a gorgeous new dinner set which is where we chose her colours from, and look how fantastic it turned out!

We gave it two coats of the turquoise/green colour, and then two coats of antique white and distressed it along the edges. It's just so fresh and pretty.

I can't wait to see what she does next!

  3. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked
    on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
    on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service?
