Table Makeover

I’m really not sure how to categorize this table.  It’s bigger than a side table, shorter than a sofa table, and smaller than even the smallest kitchen table.  I acquired {I say “acquired” because it’s a long story that involved tag switching and this was my suggested resolution to offset my loss} this from the antique mall where I have my booth.

Since colors don’t sell well for me in my booth I decided to do this table in black.  I painted the whole thing using CeCe Caldwell’s Beckley Coal.

Because it just looked too plain with the black paint, I wanted something to put on the top.  I decided to use one of the stencils I already have.

This paint definitely needs some clear wax otherwise it looks very flat and dull.  This piece is heading to my booth.

I think this table is versatile enough to be used in a number of ways ~ as a desk, an entry/foyer table, a tea table, and even a kitchen island.

Hopefully, someone will see the potential and take it home with them!

Hi! Just read your comment about the Bunny Pillow. definitely interested. I just ordered a couple things from your Etsy. I am still making up my mind about tea towels.(The voice on my head is saying "I want them ALL") Can you hold mailing the stuff I ordered until we work out the Bunny pillow then mail together?

That is a nice table now that you have painted/stenciled it. I didn't care much for it in its original state either. I think the black paint gives it a lot more presence.

Too bad about the tag switching. What is wrong with people!!!???!!! xo Diana

I love it as a kitchen island! I'm sure that won't last in your booth for very long. Who the heck switched tags? A customer or someone working there???? Craziness.

It's cute! On your specialized tag do you put suggestions for its use? It seems like you have good ideas on how to use a piece.

You're right, Kathy, this is the size and style of table that could fit into just about any room. Love the slender legs and the fact that it has a shelf on the bottom. It looks very chic in black!!

Kathy, your table is awesome. I particularly love it as a kitchen island. Whose stencil is that? It's wonderful. Great makeover. I'm sure this will be snatched up by a customer in no time.
