My weekend project

Meet the new addition to our furniture family.

How adorable is this little beat up telephone table! The seat lifts up for phone book storage, HOW FUN IS THAT???!!!!

Now she's a little beat up and a little musty smelling so we need to get her all cleaned up and spruced up a bit. She had 3 layers of covering on her seat... that had to go (a bit odoriferous).

Washed her up and gave her a couple of undercoats of off white.

Now a lot of folks would have stopped at this point, and she was looking good, but alas, I just couldn't stop.

She wanted to be rosy pink. Some varnish, new padding, and a fabric remnant completed her makeover.

Now ain't she just the cutest little old thing!

I have a Florida table and now I have my Oregon telephone table. Reminds me of roses. Go Sunset Apollos!!!

For you a rose in Portland grows.

Happy Monday!

The Oregon telephone table turned out very nice!

I've been looking for a telephone table, but haven't found one I like yet. Then of course we need an OLD phone to put on diplay :-)
