In the spirit of Christmas…

…here is my latest project

A table I bought a few years ago, and which got sent to the dungeons. That is a low dark humid dusty storage space under my terrace. Mould on the wood. And the foot cracked from the humidity. Thankfully I take furniture making classes!! I took it to class this morning, and my teacher kindly planed the wooden halves, which were a bit crooked because humidity made the wood swell. However the machine to make the holes for the “cookies” was the wrong size. He’ll bring his own machine next week. So just painted, distressed and waxed the table while waiting to do that. And put my mini Christmas tree on it.

Mini Xmas tree because I don’t want pine needles everywhere,
and I have too much upcycling furniture sitting around waiting for the next coat of paint.
As you can see, I cheated and just put the broken foot together for the picture.

Lovely detail: Xmas candy!
I hope you are enjoying all the Xmas preparations too!
Don’t forget to check out my blog: Eternal Traveler – Design your life! to see all my upcycle – recycle – better after projects, news about my design projects, news about my life design project and I’ll try not to forget to think about food once in a while too. All upcycled furniture is (or will be) for sale. Just email me at for info.
