PAINTING A 1930'S TELEPHONE TABLE TO A FRENCH COUNTRY CREAMY CRACKLED DISTRESSED FINISH
Recently I painted kitchen cabinets to a french country crackled distressed finish.
The colors were so creamy and soft.
I wanted to paint a piece of furniture with similar colors and technique.
A while back I found this 1930's telephone table and decided it would be perfect!
In case you weren't around back then, that open space was for a telephone book. The phone sat on top of the table and had a permanent wire coming from the wall.
You couldn't move the phone around the house like you can today.
I stenciled the top with a soft glaze and painted parts of the legs in the same glaze.
When I found this table, the handle was missing. In my studio stash I found this knob with a backplate and it was just the perfect size to cover the original holes.
I drilled a new hole in the middle for the new knob.
It would have been nice to have the original handle, but really like this one.
I am very happy with the way this antique table looks now.
