Saw this old little telephone table hidden away behind other furniture at Savers the other day. It did not have a price on anymore, and when I asked one of the staff, they said $5.99!!!!
Of course I said:"Sold!". Hold On...it gets better. I had a coupon for 30% off, so in the end this little beauty set me back a whopping $4.00!
My plan was to paint her a funky color in order to bring her into this century with a bang. After I was halfway putting on the white primer, though, I realized that she was meant to look more elegant than funky..
I liked the two- tone look of white and natural wood on her, so I sanded and stained the top,and sprayed the rest with Heirloom White. I accentuated the grooves by applying black tinted glaze and wiping it off again, so that just the glaze in the grooves remained. I also distressed it just a little bit on the edges, by sanding lightly,and sprayed the hardware and metal on the doors with Oil Rubbed Bronze just to make them pop again.
Here She Is!
I really, really, love this little table. She is for sale this week-end at my friend , Stacy's Shoppe Boutique , but I almost wish she would come home with me again...
Don't you just love her? I would love to know if you have done a telephone table before, or of any other unbelievable deals you have gotten lately ...
