Mrs Emily Clark, The Upcycling Mum

I am so excited to share Emily’s guest post with you this month, not only does she come to us with another great Upcycle but also some exciting news so keep reading…

Everyone now knows I love a good upcycle. I have done several pieces for our home and love the results.

I had seen a lovely coffee table in the charity and when I went back and it was still there, I just had to get it. I loved the shape of it and knew I could do something with it.


I am trying to use up the paint I have in the cupboard so it was down to Little Greene French Grey paint again.
First job though was to sand the top. Somebody had painted black over the wood (and very badly!) It took a lot is sanding and achy arms but in the end I removed it all.

I have decided to try to sell this and some other pieces. I love the change and making something like new again. There are so many lovely bits to be found especially in charity shops.

  • Ooh LOVE this! Such a simple upcycle but it’s totally transformed it. Gorgeous table shape too – is it a G Plan?

    • Emily Clark

      Such a great shape and beautiful wood. I wondered if it was a G-plan but no sticker. A friend said maybe it was a Nathan! Had never heard of but think it is, they are very expensive!! X

    • It is fab isn’t it Molly, Emily did a great job. It doesn’t have the G Plan markings so not sure xx
