Such a beautiful, gorgeously detailed piece of furniture. Just look at all those details, everywhere you look! I had an inspiration for the look of this piece….a beautiful foyer cabinet I had just seen.
White foyer cabinet

The base got 4 coats of bright white semi-gloss paint, and the top was stripped down to it’s natural state. The entire piece got a coating of clear wax, to add extra durability. And last but not least, I left the original pulls because I love that wonderful patina. So pretty!

Oak foyer table

This item has been soldOak foyer table

This great oak table spent it’s former life as a TV stand.  I saw it as being something even better though.  So it got sanded down and painted a semi-gloss bright white, and new oil rubbed bronze hardware was added.  Now, it would make a gorgeous table in a foyer, where you could drop your keys and mail; or maybe a sideboard in a dining room; or even a changing table in the baby’s room – there’s TONS of storage underneath for diapers, sheets, etc.  It even has a roomy drawer up top.  If everything had gone as planned, this table would also have had an amazing piece of gray marble on top, with a little bit of white veining.  But a little boy, who shall remain nameless, decided to poke around, and….CRASH!  Well, you get the idea.

Vintage drop leaf table

This item has been soldVintage drop-leaf table

This vintage drop leaf table was in rough shape when I found it.  It had layers and layers of sticky varnish on it that had to be painstakingly sanded down.  After all that back-breaking prep work I painted the top a really pretty, neutral taupe.  And the legs got a high gloss black.

It’s not too big – it’ll fit perfect in a small dining room, a kitchen, or even a breakfast nook.  Leave the ends up and you have a great family table.  Fold them down and it becomes a kitchen island, or a dining room sideboard.
