Vintage Telephone Table9:38:00 AM
When I found it in front of a house that was being renovated
it looked like this...
I grabbed it and ran because it was adorable
though needed a LOT of work!
First it had to be glued with wood glue because it was falling
apart at the joints. Then I had to remove some bad veneer around the edges and that ghastly seat cover...
Just another day painting furniture in my driveway...
it is a great way
to meet your neighbors, a real conversation starter.
"What are you doing and why do you have furniture
all over your driveway?"
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite then coated it
with clear wax for protection.
Next I recovered the original seat with grain sack.
The grey-blue stripe was perfect!
Still thinking it needed a little something...
I found this image on the internet here then
using my favorite transfer paper... Lesley Riley's Tap Paper,
I ironed the image right onto the seat.
This adorable table has a brand new life now!
