Cinderella: once upon a time......

a dear little table who clearly had good breeding, had been left alone, covered in orange varnish. Why DO people use that?? Underneath the scuffs and scratches she had beautiful neo-classical features and was crying out for a transformation into a French style side table perfect for a country chateau

I waved my magic paintbrush and with the help of some Annie Sloan paint and an image from the Graphics Fairy (love her!), Cinderella became the Belle of the Ball!

As soon as I saw her in her  raw state I knew that the 'laurel wreath' image from Karen at the Graphics Fairy was perfect for this little sweetie!

She is now an elegant, refined aristocrat and she will grace my retail space at Nature's Harvest beautifully (that's if I don't keep her!). I know that if I take her to my next vintage fair she will be snapped up by Prince Charming and they'll live happily ever after.....  sigh.....


  1. Saw your table on The Graphics Fairy. Love the final results!

  2. Perfect table, Kerry! I'm looking for something like this for my sunroom. Love the way it turned out!
