Companion piece to the Paris chic cupboard

WHILE I was working on the cupboard in yesterday’s post (which sold before I even got it into my booth today!) I used the same stencil to make a ‘companion’ table.

This is what it looked like before it’s most recent make over.  AND I have two more matching tables!  Hopefully the third time IS the charm on these tables because I am really close to being “over them”!  (ie SICk of repainting them!) 

Here’s the original make-over story.

Those went unsold for too long so I took them home and did the postmark stencil on all three.  Which I REALLY liked and was just SURE the shoppers would too!  Notsomuch!  So, here’s my ‘last ditch effort’ to make these little tables into something ‘sale-able’!

I absolutely LOVE this French hand writing!!!!  The place I bought the stencil from showed a dresser with the drawer fronts stenciled.  Gorgeous.  (Now I gotta find a dresser!!)

Michael thinks the ‘sticking point’ on why none of the previous versions of these tables has sold is the legs.  The rusty old crusty legs.  I LOVE the old legs.  The old legs are WHY I bought the stools in the first place.  I’d just hate to paint over all that natural rust and wear!

SO, we shall see if this make-over generates a sale?!?!?  I brought home the other two tables to also re-do.  Should I do them the same???  I wonder how the wording would look done with a bit of a diagonal slant on the table top???

For now, this one that is already done is at Curiosities; $32.00.
