Cute Little Telephone Table

I love to paint. I am so hoping I can make a small business doing what I love. I just want to make enough money to help put food on the table for our 3 hungry teenagers and help out with the bills a bit. I am so pleased with my latest remake--I think it is so cute!


I think in the time this was made it would have been called a telephone table. Now that we all have our cell phones in our pocket a telephone table is not so much of a necessitiy. I think this would be great as a small entry table or side table. I am really happy with how it has turned out! I hope it sells.

I liked it from the moment I found it at Goodwill.


I like it even better now!


I added a glass knob and a applique which really added a lot I think.



I thought it was fun that it was made in Oregon.



Thought I would share a photo of my daughters before they left for a day of shopping today.


I stayed home and started working on my next project...


This piece is more masculine than I usually do so I hope it turns out!


Thanks for visiting!

Your table came out great! I love the appliqué, it really added a lot. I am sure you will be able to make money at this you just need to keep on going with it and build up stock to take to a show or something as well as selling online. It takes tons of work. Your next piece has good bones, looking forward to seeing it.

Sandy, I have been following your blog and your daughter's blog for sometime now. I have to tell you that I look forward to each and every post you share. You are truly a kindred spirit in your decor style though mine is not as ethereal as yours. I love that you are not pretentious but sincerely appreciate all that your life offers. Your home, husband, children, parents and even pets all mean a great deal to you and it most certainly shows in your blog! I believe that you could have a wonderful business with recreating furniture pieces; you do such a good job on each piece you share with blog land. I also believe that your blog could somehow provide you with a little extra cash with the right sponsers. I do not know how one goes about obtaining the right sponsers but do know that several bloggers make a living at it. Your blog has it all in my opinion...eye candy, DIY, sharing life's happy moments, raising children, pets and all they offer, I could go on and on! Anyway, you are a true inspiration to me! Thank you for sharing. You have encouraged me and pulled me through a few tough times with your positive outlook on life! You, Sandy are not only a BLESSED woman but a woman who is a BLESSING!

Thanks bunches,
Connie
