Pink girlie dressing table

Hi everyone! In advance, thank you for visiting my page. My latest blog post is progression photos of a girlie pink dressing table, with sparkly knobs. It’s my favourite and I hope you like it too šŸ˜Š Cheers!

I am super pleased with the way this one has gone, it’s my favourite so far as really girlie, hehe. I painted with pink frenchie paint which is fab. I tried wood staining the top with an ‘antique pine’ stain however the batch I bought from B&M was dodgy, I swapped it and it was still dark, more a mahogany than pine. I thought when dried it might go lighter, but it wasn’t to my taste. At this point, the project was a disaster as the top looked hideous lol. I got out my orbital sander and sanded it back to bare wood which massively improved the top. I sealed it with a couple layers of clear varnish, and lacquered the legs/frame. Then, to finish, some gorgeous sparkly knobs my boss donated šŸ‘ And here is the finished product:

My next couple of projects I’m thinking of decoupaging some maps, such as world maps, onto tables, or superhero wallpaper. I have some projects in the pipe line for the store cafe too, so plenty to keep me busy šŸ˜Š

Thanks so much for taking the time to read/view my blog, as always much appreciated, Lauren xx
