How to Easily Transform a Mid-Century Modern Telephone Table in Under an Hour

August 2, 2017

I first laid eyes on this vintage telephone table at a garage sale in my neighborhood. I paid $4 for it and packed it all the way home and just new it was going to be transformed into something fun, I just had no idea what I wanted to do. I had to wait until inspiration hit. After 2 years, I was finally ready to get down to work and get it painted. I wanted to go light and bright. I wanted to keep the metal details but get rid of the scratched up brown painted legs and laminated wood top. I finally made up my mind and went with

I finally made up my mind and went with Fusion Mineral Paint in Little Piggy for the legs and Picket Fence for the top. I taped off the metal details with green painters tape and began painting with synthetic bristle brushes.

I love how fresh and bright this paint made this little accent table. Finally, this piece looks like it actually belongs in our living room.

What do you think? Does it look better? I think so! I love how easy it is to take a tired little accent table and transform it into something you love and want to have in your home.
