Bringing out the details: Cottage chic update for vintage pedestal table

P1190959I think this is probably my very favorite style of lamp tables.

P1190960

Mostly because of the pretty turned pedestals and elegant feet.

P1190958This recent find was still very sturdy, but extremely ‘well worn’.

P1190963Even the lower tier was in quite bad shape.

P1190962Be still my heart!!!  Look at those lovely, delicate carved details along the edges!!

P1190961Such a shame that they are barely noticeable in it’s ‘all brown’ state.

P1200308Nearly all of the old varnish was already worn off, so it just needed a wee bit of sanding before I painted it white.  After three coats of paint, it was time to bring out those pretty details.

P1200311I hand sanded along the high points on the feet and the turnings on the pedestal.

P1200310Brought out the turned details on the center part of the pedestal.

P1200312And those delicately carved details along the rims of both tiers.

P1200309Because I wanted those details around the rims to really stand out, I opted to not do any distressing on the flat table top surfaces.

P1200324I took her to Stars last week so I could ‘rebuild’ that all white vignette at the front on my booth.

P1200325This one of a kind beauty can be yours for $99.00.

  1. Your pedestal table is perfectly charming! I’m sure it will not last long in your Stars space!

  2. Love your table! ! That won’t last long.

  3. Oh wow, what a beauty – imagine having to set up a tea and cake table – especially with that cake stand (in your shop).
