Louis Blue Sidetable

I posted this little side table back in October here and I was never really very happy with it, it was the first time I had used the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Louis Blue and it was just a bit too 'Blue' so I decided to tone it down a little by painting the legs and edges in 'Old White' I also changed the  handles, and I'm really pleased with how it looks now.

 
I can't beleive I found some daffodils for sale - I couldn't resist them, there's nothing like a touch of spring in January!
Just started working on a beautiful Bureau, can't wait to share it.
Bye for now
