1st Commission

The very same day I sold my coffee table with the French Advertising Graphic, I had a call from a lovely lady who had seen it and wanted one just the same, I explained that the pieces I have are "one offs" but I would try and find another table similar and reproduce a similar piece for her.  After a few weeks of searching I found another coffee table almost identical, the dimensions were a more rectanglar rather than square but luckily it was virtually the same, so we set to work and completed our first commission.

I think I prefer the rectangle.  It was painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Old White and then waxed with brown Briwax and finished with clear Briwax, to give a distressed and Vintage look.
Today I went to my favorite place - Ardingly Antiques and Collectors Fair at the South of England Show Ground, I picked up a few things which I will share very soon.
Bye for now.
