…the ashley table

A sweet mama from our preschool had a coffee table that needed some attention. She brought it over and sadly it needed to be stripped because the paint was so thick & chipping off so I couldn’t simply paint over. Admittedly, I’m not a stripper. I’d much rather do the fun part of painting & sanding. We did find a happy solution in a pretty oval table I had in “the shop” a.k.a my garage.

I was so delighted that she wanted to use Duck Egg Blue, which I had never played with before. How charming it turned out!

She’s a little bit cottage, a little bit shabby chic.

A little bit traditional.

If you have an old piece of furniture that you would like refinished. Let’s talk! cbensten@blueeggbrownnest.com

  1. Oh Lordy! Don’t get me started on duck egg…Fave!!
    Looks great!

  2. Lovely! I got inspired by the WP article last week and just recommended using chalk paint on a coffee table in a living room I’m working on. I recommended “Duck Egg” and am so happy I can show my clients the picture of your table so they have a better idea of what it will look like.
    I love your work and I will sure be stopping by one day!

  3. Thank you for another informative website. Where else could I am getting that type of info written in such an ideal way?
