A Sweet Little Telephone table

This is a sweet little telephone table makeover. 
 I figured since I did the brown suitcase on my last post I could show you a "Hurt your teeth its so sweet" project.


I took this cute little brown table and painted it with Heirloom white 


Then I added a water slide decal, the graphic is from Graphics Fairy, I photo shopped in the rose


I wallpapered the inside with Vintage Laura Ashley paper


Then added my homemade polymer clay Paris knob, the tutorial is HERE


I priced it at $45 and it sold in a day


.....Hum maybe I priced it to low, you never know, had I priced it higher it might have taken months to sell


OK, was that tooooo sweet, are your teeth hurting?


Happy Crafting!


Carol

Truly lovely! Pricing is such a tricky thing. I never know how to price my things.

Rhissanna said...

Never too much sugar! I love this little table and yes, I can understand it selling that quickly!

I think you could have doubled the price on that pretty piece and still sold it in a day! I would have fallen in love with it at first glance! ~ Maureen

Fabulous! What a delightful change. I always start high when selling, as I can lower it if need be.

Have a great day ~

I love it, Carol! What a perfect little piece, too. I could just see this in a bathroom. I think you priced it just right. I'd have paid $45.00 for it, but don't know that I'd have gone higher than that. Of course, different parts of the country call for different pricing. I'm learning that what I thought was a good deal in NY, is high for Ohio.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

It's really pretty! I can see why it sold so quickly. Your projects always look great.

Once again you have made something plain beautiful, your own decal, your own knob, what next? I would not be able to sell it.

That little table is adorable! I do think you could have gotten more but I am sure whoever got it is in love with it and that makes it fun. I love how you added that rose to that decal! That pop of pink adds so much! I am so inspired with the water slide decals--I can't wait to make a bunch more projects!

My teeth hurt from a visit to the dentist this morning! I'd pick your table and any other treats you'll share any time over a visit to the dentist. They would be pure pleasure.♥♫

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

I was going to say I had a toothache from all that sweetness but it was probably my sugary sweets that caused it! lol This is beautifully sweet!

Ohhhh,now adorably sweet! Doyle do you part with all your wonderful creations? I tend to get attached and want to keep too much stuff.

Nancy said...

Oh Yes, Sweet & Adorable!!! I am getting ready to do a little Wood Table with drawers, and a Wine Rack below it that is Metal & Black. Wondering if I should do the Wine Rack Portion in White to match or leave it the Black. But I definetly need some of your Paris Knobs. Fingers crossed you do sell them doll!

Huggs, Nancy
