Does Anyone have the Time?

Is it "time" for dinner?

A funky table makeover for JunkFest 2010, was the perfect solution to this otherwise boring round vintage table, and adds eye candy to any tablescape.

To achieve the look I started by printing and cutting out the stencils for the roman numerals. Instead of stippling the stencil design I traced the outlines for placement, then handpainted each one. (yes...those are reading glasses, I'm showing my age!)

The legs were painted white like the table top, and given an antiqued finish.

I started giving the top a similar "antique" finish, but kinda forgot to stop! I just kept throwing on paint and by the time I a great wood-look result.

Here she is set up at JunkFest 2010 complete with bingo card and potted fork placecard holders. and a round mirror simply sitting on the table gives the illusion of a lazy susan.

And how fun is that ladder in the center?! Adding height and character to an already funky setting.

Those sweet coordinating chairs are the design of Miss Cassie. Don't you just LOVE the ruffled slipcovers?

You've seen the funky side of a makeover, now here's a "dressy" version. This table, although very well made, was a bit dated. Who could pass up the versatility of it though...from apartment size, lift the two large dropleaves, then add two leaves...and you're ready for holiday company!

A glamorous look of black, with a touch of shabby. Perfect. Wait a minute, is that DUST?

That's better. See how much can be accomplished in Picasa?

And again add some sweet chairs from Miss Cassie, plus a few super-fabulous accents. Love. It.

Post edit: after the first few comments wanting to know what the finish is on the black table...thought I'd share. The table was painted in latex black with a roller, then lightly sanded for a slight shabby appearance. The topcoat is several layers of semi gloss polyurethane with a foam brush.

  1. I love the black finish on the drop leaf table! Stunning! What kind of paint was that? And the clock table is adorable. Good job on both.

  2. I can't decide which I like best!! They are both terrific makeovers. I also would like to know how you got such a smooth finish on the black table? Looks like it came from the factory that way! Once again great job!

  3. I love the clock table!! I am your newest follower! Come visit me!

  4. Your clock table is brilliant! So creative. I like the clock on the wall too. I am joining as a new follower and can't wait to see to more of your makeovers. Come over to the nest for a visit sometime.
