Telephone Table

We're moving this week, and I've been picking up pieces to decorate my new house.

And last week I bought this beauty at a garage sale. Love it! I can't wait to refinish it.
It's an antique telephone table.
It needs some love... and probably some glue as well.
possibly some stain.
Definitely some pledge.
and lemon oil.
and some Watco.
But without a doubt it needs a new seat!
{Nice picture of my shoes, eh?}

The new kitchen is done in blue. It's VERY committed to blue, actually.
Now, I don't really do blue, but I am branching out and embracing it!
So this is the fabric for the new seat. It's going to be something in teeny half-square triangles. And the top fabric will be used for the curtains as well.
Stay tuned!


  1. Love it!!! Can't wait to see what you do!!



  2. My husband bought me a gossip bench a few weeks ago. I love it. The curve on yours is gorgeous. I think every house needs one of these.

  3. Can any of you imagine being tied to a cord on the one phone in your family's house and carrying on all your conversations within earshot of everyone else who is around?

    Those were the days!! At least we didn't have a party line, like a lot of people in my little corner of North Dakota did.
