TELEPHONE TABLE

I gotta say, its been a while since I had the chance to do a furniture piece. Don't get me wrong, I HAVE a ton of furniture pieces to do.....but I just don't have the time these days...

My Sister and Brother-In-Law have just bought a beautiful new house. Their entrance / porch is massive, and full of light. So when I was given a vintage telephone table, I knew exactly who it would go to!

First step was to sand it all down. Then I used a couple coats of Dulux Satinwood in Caramel Sand.

I bought a remnant piece of fabric from a local fabric store and recovered the cushion. *My staple gun is my best friend*

So, here she is, with her new look! I really hope my Sis-in-Law likes her!! 

What do you think? ;-)

  17. Isn't it amazing what paint can do?! Your telephone bench looks awesome, I have a smaller one that was my Mom's, fond memories of her using it ... I think about painting it but I guess the memories overcome the paint. Thanks for sharing, saw your link at A Favorite Thing.
