Before & After furniture restyle: teddy bear side-table

Today's before and after is a distressed side-table with beautiful curved legs that a client asked me to re-paint for her to use in a guest bedroom that she has designated for when her grand-daughter comes to stay. We filled the room with beautiful fairy lights, jelly printed bedding, pink & purple hanging hearts, a lilac tub chair, a very cuddly teddy bear and a painting of my client's own favourite bear, which she painted herself.

The room will also be used as a single guest room so needed to be flexible in terms of style, which is why we kept the curtains and bed-spread non-girly, using silky golds and lilacs and we also have another set of bedding, which is less jellyish and more grown-up (personally I love the jellies!).

The side-table was an old mahogany table, previously used as a telephone table, which I painted in Annie Sloan Old White. I gave the table two coats of paint and wax and sanded down all od the edges to give it a more shabby, romantic look.
