Vintage Telephone Table Makeover
Today I am sharing a Vintage Telephone Table makeover! Not something you see everyday. I think these tables are also known as a Gossip Table…? Do you remember these? When Kevin brought it home for me, my first thought was it’s a school desk. Then my Mom told me what it really was. I feel like maybe my Grandparents might have had one? I can picture a small table and chair and a mauve rotary phone sitting on it. Oh the good old days!
Here is the lovely “Before”.
I went with a “French Shabby Chic” look. You know me, I love that style! 😉
Last Fall I had great plans of painting my Living Room so I picked up a couple samples of paint and tried them on the wall. Don’t tell anyone, but the room has NOT been painted yet and the samples are still on my wall! Yup! They are! Every single week, I say I am going to get this room painted and than it seems like such a daunting task that I never do it! I would rather stick with painting furniture. But anyways, I used one of the samples for this chair. It’s called Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore. It is a white, with Gray undertones. I actually made my own chalk paint recipe for this makeover. Let me know if you would like me to share it. I really liked how it worked and was able to get good coverage with 2 coats. Once dry, I gave it a light distressing for that fabulous Shabby Chic look.
I covered the seat with a French Reproduction Burlap Grain Sack that I had found online awhile ago. If you would like, you can grab one here. (Non Affiliate)
For the top, I just used a piece of burlap and painted on the faux grain sack stripes. I had originally just kept it plain, and I wasn’t really liking it. I think the stripes added a little extra appeal to it. Don’t ya think? Overall, I am pleased with the finished product! This was one of those makeovers that I was not loving until the very end. Once I added the stripes, I was like “Ok, now I am happy”!
What do you think?
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
