I had this table for many years now. The pathetic thing is, I couldn’t for the life of me find a before picture of it! I don’t even remember where I picked it up. I always had plans for it to sit below my stairs, as a little “telephone” table…..
I had planned on fixing it up and putting it in my space for the next sale at Paris Flea Market. I had my space all stocked and lovely. Got an email Monday night from another vendor that she had fallen in love with a little black bench and Mirror/coat rack I had, and she bought it! I needed some more stuff for the space STAT!
I painted the base with three coats of a mustard yellow Chalk Paint. The top I painted with and Antique White. Then I used both a Gold Leaf Pen, to highlight the edges of the top, and dry brushed on some Martha Stewart Craft Paint in “Gold”. (it really is very good stuff). I used “Word Art” from Microsoft Word to make the word “telephone”, then used an overhead projector to trace it on.
I am so happy, I am ringing with joy! It is literally “off the hook”. (o.k., I will hang up the puns now…..)
