As a fan of upcycling second hand furniture, I'm always on the lookout for potential shabby chic transformations. I spotted this nest of tables in a charity shop for just £5 and I knew they'd look lovely with a coat of a paint. This was one of the more quick and simple upcycling projects I've completed - all it took was two coats of eggshell paint and cutting some Laura Ashly fabric for placement under the glass tops and it was finished! The smaller table is ideal for providing some extra space for drinks and nibbles when we have guests, and then it can be tucked away when it's not in use - perfect when you're short of space!
