Retro Coral Telephone Tables

Hope you all had a good weekend.
Mine was fantastic since I got to enjoy the great weather we had in Chi-town.  Maybe the last one before the snow starts rolling in?  Gosh I hope not but I'm sure that is wishful thinking...
I had so many compliments on my Coral Night Stand that I decided to paint a pair of retro telephone tables in "Pretty in Coral".

Cute, right?
I painted them with homemade chalk paint using Tropical Coral from Olympic.  I wanted to add some unique character so I "dipped" the legs in white and white washed the sides.

I LOVe how they turned out!  They are so fun and will make such a statement in the lucky home they go to.  I have them listed for sale in my Etsy Shop or here.
These are how they looked before.
And some more after shots.

  4. Hello!
    I think I came here from Ms. Mustard Seed's weekly thing. Just wanted to tell you I love these little tables. The coral completely changes the "vibe" I'm not a MCM fan at all, which is what surprises me at how much these, with the coral, speak to me. I'm off to browse your site a bit more. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Pretty! Love the coral! I need to incorporate it into my decor somewhere :)

  6. I love telephone tables! Found you at Prim and Proper. There's a party at my place if you feel like sharing!

  7. Very nice, but those aren't telephone tables. They are end tables or side tables. Lamps (matching, of course) go on the top tier.

  8. The dipping the legs in white and white washing the sides definitely made the telephone tables worth a second look. I mean, I could imagine it plain and boring without those effects. Good job!
