We love upcycling!.......... an old ercol coffee table.

For those of you that follow us, you will know that we love all things up cycled! and if its not up cycling old fabric to create our personalised fabric party bags its furniture!

We recently found an old Ercol coffee table, worn and tired with coffee cup stains. A beautiful design, however it needed a little t.l.c.

So we decided to do this......

Ta dah! what do you think? We chose a Habitat paint in kingfisher which is suitable for walls, metal and wood, and a dulux primer.

We now have the "itch", chairs next we think!!!

Have a fab week.

Kay's designs are screen printed by herself in a studio in south east London.

She make's other bits and bobs which are all made in the uk, her tea towels are a popular gift!

Her prints are inspired by treasure finds in junk shops, She love's collecting retro story books.
