Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

I've been busy with small projects all year round... But still my mother did not really trust me with painting.

 

A few month ago, she brought me this bedside table, telling me "it's in such a dreaful state, you can't do worse"... Feel the motherly trust, here?

 

Il y a quelque temps ma maman m'a apporté cette vieille table de nuit en me disant que je pouvais en faire ce que je voulais car je ne pourrais pas faire pire...

I'm sorry now that I didn't take a before picture of the back as it  was broken in several places.

 

Je regrette, comme toujours, de ne pas avoir pris de photo de l'état pitoyable du plateau et surtout des fentes colossales dans le bois au dos...  Le blog était alors en pause et les photos n'avaient donc pas lieu d'être...

I used "wood paste" (I have no idea how it's called) for the first time and was amazed that I was able to fix the back.

 

J'ai utilisé pour la première fois de la pâte à bois pour le dos du meuble. Magique!

I thought it was worth painting since now it was able to stand on its own.

The inside is painted in a very light blue that I love... but that tends to change depending on the light and it appears quite white in the sunshine... with my very cheap camera.

Maybe this time, my mom will begin to trust me...

 

paints used: "crème" by Libéron & "borrowed light" by Farrow & Ball

Elle est vraiment bien réussie ta petite table ! Je sens que je vais écumer les brocantes pour trouver de vieux meubles pas chers que tu transformeras !
