Stripes - Grey and White Side Table

Last week I shared a duck egg blue side table that I'd painted ready for Avoca Beachside Markets. This week I have her taller, and stripier, sister.

As I was working on her everything seemed to go wrong - I'd set up a bunch of activities for Harry (2) so I could do a final coat of white paint, but the only thing he was interested in was what I was doing! When I wasn't watching he was running his fingers across the paint, making lovely little snail trails everywhere! Then he lent on the table and had paint smudges all over his shirt. So I gave up.

And in that moment when I walked away, while watching Harry jump on the trampoline and we played in the garden, I realised that stripes would be perfect for this little white table. So I added them during his sleep time and I couldn't be happier.

I guess some things just need to be left for a moment! This table went home with a lovely lady I met at the markets over the weekend. She told me she loves everything french, and grey, and though this was perfect! I love it when people fall in love with something I've reworked, make the hours in the garage, the trek out to market and all the related guff worth it.

This month's market will actually be my last one for a little while. I have a great new project to get started on (more about that soon) which will mean I can't make the August or September dates. Will keep you posted about when I'll be there again :)

  12. Love the stripes, they finish it off perfectly. I know the pain of painting with little ones, I painted some walls last week and came back to see my 2 & 4 year old had smudged all the lower walls and had paint all over them. Big sighs that day :)


I'd love to hear from you!
