I was trolling around the internet in the middle of the night a while ago and found a wonderful photo of a little table - I think this was a tutorial by Christine-Lea Frisoni (by the way, if anyone knows where I could access this tutorial I would be so grateful!!!). It is pictured below. I just loved this little table, so I had a go at making one today (rainy weekend). I had the same old superglue issues but I am quite pleased with this little table for the shabby bedroom....I have made it rusty so it looks old and well-loved.
Thank you so much for your comments - I really appreciate them!
