Shabby Telephone Table

I found a wonderful telephone table at an estate sale, of course I had to Shabby it up!


I Sprayed it with heirloom white paint, I've done a lot of brush painting lately, but with the open scrolls on the sides, spraying was easier and I was in a hurry to get some furniture in my antiques booth


I used my water slide decal on the front..Tutorial HERE  The Graphic is from Graphics Fairy


Oh, it's got to be pretty on the inside too, so I used a shelf liner I bought at the Dollar store


I priced this at $45 and took it to my
 "OH SO EMPTY" booth at Orange Tree


I've been painting up a storm.  My booth was so neglected while I was focused on the wedding, I usually check my booth twice a week, here's my booth as I left it before the wedding


And here is how I found it after the wedding... How great is that!  I love to look at the pictures and play the "What's missing game"!


Along with the telephone table, I painted a tall plant stand and some other furniture pieces......


And got my booth filled up once again!


Yippee, I'm catching up! 

 I got so behind with all of the wedding prep and festivities.

Yep, Carol's got her groove back!

Happy Creating!

I've been checking in on your blog for several months, and I absolutely love the items that you refurbish! Truly gorgeous! I am a new "boother", and just getting started. Any advice for us novices?

It's amazing how much prettier it looks painted with the Heirloom White, Carol! Such a great little table. Well, that's good! You were selling things and you didn't even have to be there. : )

You always amaze me with your gorgeous makeovers Carol. Of course things sold while you were gone. It's nice to see your new creations.

Oh! And it's so fun to get our happily-busy REAL lives back. And believe me, the married kids are no different!

Your new revamps are precious, and I, too, love to reflect on, "What's missing?" That is a blast!

Merry Christmas!

Wow, wow, wow! I am so impressed with how quickly you did that table project and it looks lovely! How come I never see shelf liner like that at the dollar store?!

Marilyn said...

Great looking pieces that you put in your empty booth! Yes-I'd enjoy playing the game of what's missing, but no time! You are my painting queen.♥♫

Heirloom White is such a beautiful color. You certainly transformed that table. Your booth looks charming...and full!

Gina said...

Beautiful new pieces! It looks like your booth did quite well. It looks great all stocked up again!

Mary Ellen said...

Wow just look at all the furniture you sold!!!! That is fantastic!! I have that same tall plant stand and need to paint it white! Love the telephone stand and the decal is just perfect on it!!

I am hoping to get to use those wonderful decals you sent home with me soon! WEll---- after Christmas-

Got a root canal done today and, oh boy, am I sore! The dentist even called me tonight to see how I was doing as I guess it was a bit more intensive then usual! Never had a dentist do a house call before!

Well friend- glad you have your groove back!

Maureen Wyatt said...

Wow, that was one empty booth! I don't think that telephone table will stay put very long either! I don't think I'll have time to try the decals I ordered from you until after Christmas but I'm itching to get at them.

Hi Carol, Love how you shabbied up the table cabinet and the shelf liner is too wonderful. I am going to look for that one at the Dollar Store. The plant stand is awesome too. Everyone needs one of those too.
Your booth looks wonderful and so glad you sold lots of goodies. Looks like you are really catching up quick.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, CM

SavannahGranny said...

That is a beautiful shop and I know it was bittersweet to see all the items that flew out. But sales equal dollars.It looks great now and that telephone table is probably already gone.
Glad you're back in the groove.
Blessings, Ginger

Marlynne said...

Oh how fun to be selling so much! It was great fun when we were doing it, but it is a lot of work!

marda said...

I adore that telephone stand.. boy could I put that to use!!!! At least it gives me an idea of what to look for the next time I'm at our local antiques shop.. but I'll have to do the fixing up myself!!
Wish you were closer... like about 1000 miles.!!
