...a Freegle find

I love Freegle.  In my town it use to be Freecycle and now it's Freegle, though Freecycle is still in operation.  It's all very confusing.  I've had so many great things from there and this weekend I snagged myself another great find.

It's a solid mahogany occasional table.  It has a drawer and a shelf and lots of mug marks on the top.  Why do people not use coasters?!

I'm going to paint it with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Old White.  I saw the paint on Kirstie's Homemade Home and thought it was the perfect paint for someone as cack handed as me.  I'm going to have to build up the courage to use it though.  I don't want to ruin it without first having a trial run with the paint.  So whilst I build up the courage, the table is sitting in my hall taking up space.  Another reason for the Big Man to be grumpy.  Oh well.  Happy Valentine's Day.


  1. lovely find - well done. Would love to offer advice on how to paint but Im hopeless lol. I have a selection of chairs, little shelves etc all bought with the intention of painting but sadly all in the loft. can't wait to see how you get on with the paint - might inspire me to get my brushes out. x

  2. Thanks Eliza. I too have a collection all dotted around the house and garage, all waiting for some TLC. Hopefully I'll make the big jump and do something with them now that I've bought the paint. Fingers crossed.
