ANTIQUE TABLE BEFORE AND AFTER MAKEOVER

I am excited to show you my antique table that got a paint makeover in beautiful Poetic Blue.

I have wanted to paint my antique table for a long time and am excited to be a part of The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest. This is my first time to be part of such a fun event. 

This month’s contest is sponsored by Pure & Original Paints.  In exchange for this post, I was given two free quarts of Pure & Original Classico paint. All of the opinions and experiences are my own. This post does contain an affiliate link which means if you click on the link I will receive a small commission at no extra charge to you.

The Theme for this month is Pure Colors, Original Elegance.  I have never heard of or used Pure & Original paint before. It is a luxury paint imported from the Netherlands. The paint is made from minerals, chalk, and water.

My old telephone table before- Antique Table Gets A Paint Makeover in Beautiful Poetic BlueHere is the Before photo of the antique table I painted. This table has seen a lot of life. It was originally black. I remember my Mom sanding it down to how it looks above. I have a lot of fond memories growing up with this table that is actually a telephone table. The open space area is where telephone books were stored and the top of the little table is where the phone sat.

I remember:

Mom would twirl herself up in the long phone cord, laughing while talking to her Mom and Dad.

My Dad made many calls from this table announcing the birth of my many siblings….  It’s another girl.

I memorized my friend’s phone number and proudly dialed her number myself feeling grown up.

I got my first call from a boy in school.

Now is time for a new look with a beautiful blue and gray.

Silver Like and Poetic Blue Paint 2

Poetic Blue Paint by Pure and Original Paint 4

I picked out Poetic Blue and Silver Like to transform my antique telephone table and take it from yesterday’s look to today’s to-die-for blues that are so popular like coastal blues and mint green-blues.

This poetic blue just so happens to match our newly painted walls of Palladian Blue perfectly.

Drying time in-between coats was fast. I was able to take my time and complete the coats in two days.

I did distress the legs a little by using a rag and wiping the paint off in the knob areas, but truthfully I decided I did not care if the table was distressed or not. All I cared about was drenching the antique table in as much of this beautiful blue color as I could like a tall glass of iced tea in the summer.  The more beautiful Poetic blue the better is how it went for me and telephone table.

Psst! It is the lighting in my hallway vs the lighting down stairs that make the blues in the photos look different. The photo below shows the true poetic blue paint color.

It is just the right size to move around and be handy. Now that it is a beautiful blue I want it out front and center for everyone to see and hey, it can still be a telephone table with plenty of room for cell phones.  In fact, this would make a great charging table for my families cell phones.
