Danish Coffee Table


Always on the lookout for 60/70s pieces, I found a great, original tiled coffee table in a charity shop.
I loved the tile colour and design but the wood frame was tired and very dark.
I wasn’t 100% sure about it but it was ridiculously cheap so it seemed churlish to overlook it.
It stayed buried under all kinds of detritus in my hall for ages until, in a surge of creativity, I decided to slap some paint on it.

Sadly I didn’t stop to take any before pictures 😳

But this is it during the process.

I love it.
I did test out a couple of other colours first but thought the white gave a cleaner contrast to the tiles.
