Shabby Table





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!

I think it looks just great, very shabby chic! The bed is lovely, did you make that too?

Hi!

Your table looks fantastic. Here is the address of Lea Frisoni's tutorials. Here is a huge amount of them and I think the table might be there somewhere. http://atelier.oldiblog.com/?page=articles&rub=62672

Christine is the author of the book: The French House? This is her blog: http://atelier.oldiblog.com/ Although I haven't seen everything on it yet, I figure that's the place you're looking for. Such inspirations.... Have fun
By the way, the bed looks quite different with this dainty little talbe next to it. Perhaps you need to see the complete picture of a room to appreciate the furniture in it.

Sorry, I should've read the other comments first. Now I've doubled up with the answer.

Really lovely. I've been wanting to make a wire bed but wasn't sure how to approach it. I have the same superglue problem!
