Phone Home...

You are wandering through a Junk Market or Garage Sale when you see that one piece that no matter how bad in shape it is, or how random a piece, you can already see the finished result in your head...

Well, that was this gorgeous Antique Telephone Table I found at a secondhand market last Saturday!! I knew as soon as I saw it what I wanted it to look like after it had come home with me and had some loving put into it...

Antique Telephone Table Original

And the end result..

The After..

The drawer was left in its original wood and a dark stain added... 
I had been saving this DIVINE fabric for the right project and I knew this was it.. 

Some finishing touches - Like my parents Wedding photo taken 41 years ago..

The Before and After..

I'm SO, SO happy with the finished look!
Now, if I can only find that perfect antique telephone to go on top one day...

Smiles & Happiness, Haylie xx


  1. I just found this post, and thus your blog, via Better After. I loooooooove this! What a wonderful job you did! And by the way, that is one of the neatest pieces of furniture I've seen yet!

    I'm right there with ya and feel the same way when I see a piece of furniture, that's beat up but the "after" image comes right to my head. Just the other day I picked up a large tv stand next to the trash and am working to fix it up! Can I ask, where did you find that fabric because it really is divine? Magical is how it makes me feel.

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by Aubrey, and that is EXACTLY what the fabric did for me too - isn't it divine!

      I got it at a local fabric store, but I found some here on Etsy Hun! http://www.etsy.com/listing/85620783/l038d-cotton-linen-fabric-vintage-hot

      Can't wait to see your TV stand finished!!

  2. I'm over from Better After, too. I LOVE this! That fabric is so perfect. I've had my eye out for an old telephone table like this, I think they are so fun.

    1. LOVED that you stopped by Tara - keep looking for that table, you'll find it when you least expect it, Hun!!

  3. I also am over here via better after. I love this! Where did you find the material?

    1. Hi Katrina!! Thanks so much for popping over for a visit Hun! I was lucky enough to find this GORGEOUS fabric at a local store, but I did find some online here for you via Etsy - http://www.etsy.com/listing/85620783/l038d-cotton-linen-fabric-vintage-hot
