Pretty Crafty Home Table Revamp

I have been trying to make my home a pretty crafty home this year with inspiration from the lovely Cherry Heart.

I picked up this little nest of tables at the Oxfam shop last year for £4.99 and they are a grand addition to our lounge (I forgot to take a proper before photo but this is them below).

In scuffed mahogany they were not really to my taste so I set to with my little mouse sander and a few coats of Dulux Parsonage Cream and a couple of coats of wax and hey presto some tables that actually 'go' in my lounge.

That shabby old chair is on my radar now I'm thinking a patchwork chair for the corner if I can work out how to do it!.

i cant wait to see what you do with the arm chair as i have one very similar and need ideas, inspirations. ive just put a patchwork throw on it to hide the orange fabric which is ghastly! the little tables i need some of them as i threw out a coffee table which was broken and have no where to put my coffee other than the floor hehe ;0)x

What you've done to those tables is nothing short of brilliant. Can't wait to see the chair made over! x

I love the tables. I'm looking forward to seeing the chair once it's finished. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, they're amazing. What a transformation! So pretty and fresh now :)
Great idea for the chair! Paint + patchwork = a heavenly place to sit in my view! Can't wait to see when it's done.

Thanks for the kind comment you left on my recent post. I'm on the mend now, thank goodness :)

Have a great weekend

What a great transformation for the tables and such a bargain too! Patchwork on that chair would look so fabulous, I hope you can figure it out, I'd love to see!
