Telephone Table Before & After

I had a wonderful new client bring this awesome telephone table to me this month.  I believe it belonged to her Grand Mother and it has got to be one of the coolest pieces I have done!  I just love how the chair swings in and out from under the table.  So cool.  Anyway, she says “I want it black, but I’m not picky”…. ‘not picky’ is music to my ears!!!

As I am painting a piece, I often find that the piece sort of tells me how it wants to be finished. Many times, I plan on just flat out painting the pieces, but once I get a few coats on, it just screams ‘distress me’.  Or the other way around.  I’ve distressed a piece and gone back and painted in the distressing for a clean feel.  Same thing happens with colour all of the time!!  In fact, I just did a lamp in a gorgeous Nautical Blue… It looks horrible, and I’m planning on redoing it in black.  Although I’ll probably stare at it for a few months before I actually get to it.
