Occasional table in its new space. Paired with a vintage carved stool and propped with snappy accessories, its a bright and cheery table. Gadorable!
The use of vintage bird-print paper from Katzenbach & Warren (a triple roll scored at a garage sale for ONE DOLLAR) gives this table-top a lighter side.
Close-up of finished piece. Whole surface was sanded, painted a red base coat, sanded, painted a butterscotch top coat, sanded to reveal detailing... then once dry, finished in clear poly. Pant. Pant!
The table. Before.
The table. Before BEFORE. The laminate top had been damaged by water-rings (just where did they have that glass top, then?).

Gadora scored this 24" round table at a recent garage sale for a song... Remembering the triple roll of vintage paper in the garage, the occasional table began to take shape. Oh so pretty. Now it sits in an entry hall with a few well-appointed accessories perched on top.
