Phone Table Given A New Life

I have the most amazing friends and family. Since I started working my hobby as a business, everyone seems to find junk for me, especially junk furniture.

Last spring, friends brought over this poor, dog-chewed phone table, it was a mess! Aside from the damage by their dog, it was rickety and had ugly fabric on the seat. I finally got to work on it last month.

You can see what bad shape this guy was in…especially the two corners their dog nibbled on.

The first thing we did was sand and router the edges.

I have some gorgeous toile that I used to re-upholster the seat after putting new foam & batting on.

I gave it a new look with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ in Old Ochre, with Old Violet on the edges and drawer knob. A little distressing, light & dark wax, attach the seat and I am in love with how it turned out.

It was really hard for me to take this phone table to the booth at Woodstock’s One Of A Kind Antique Mall, but I can’t keep everything. Thank Heavens I have pictures to remember it by…

Sorry for the lousy picture!

  1. Dearest Debbie, you are a miracle worker! The end product looks amazing and I just love the way you have it displayed :) You are such an inspiration.

    Hugs to you!

  2. Looks fabulous, Debbie. I would never have thought to use the Old Violet, but love how it looks against the Old Ochre (my favourite colour). I bet it will be sold really quickly.

    And I love how feminine your booth looks right now.

  3. On another note, one of my tables sold at Waterford. So I may have to go back there before the holidays after all!!

  4. What??? I can’t keep everything??? Don’t tell my husband that.

  5. So pretty! Don’t you love a good challenge? I see loads of fun stuff in your booth! Wish I lived closer!

  6. That looks super sweet! Next year I learn how to use a router… I’m going to have so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. My goodness! You did an amazing job on this!

  8. Wow! Looks great. My bonus sister loves Annie Sloan paint. I may have to pick up a quart.
