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!)
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.
