Straight from the auction block

I've got a new adventure going in my life right now - I'm part owner in a 6' x 6' booth space at an antique mall.  Since that space is pretty small to display furniture, I've been looking for another place to rent.  I found a really cool spot, but I'm not sure.  It's just a corner of someone else's business and sigh.  It just seems wonderful, but they've never done this type of renting before.  I'm not sure I want to be the guinea pig!

However, I keep buying furniture! and I keep seeing the FABULOUS things I can do with it!

For Example --

I purchased this yesterday at auction.



It's little bench with two shelves.  In the olden days when we had telephones that actually attached to the wall and cords that were famously short, people actually sat in chair or on a bench when they talked on the phone.  I had a vision for this little sad piece of furniture, so I bought it.


Then when I came home to see if I could find some good ideas on paint colors or fabrics, I found this...




Do you think my homely little bench will be transformed to look something like the inspiration piece??(The inspiration photo is from here -- Kanibal Home)


I think it can, I think it can, I think it can, I think it can...

I certainly like the "bones" of your piece! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Absolutely! Can't wait to see the transformation. I, too, have a telephone table. It's cute but NOT comfortable at all. I have a plant on it :)

How fun to have a blank (of sorts) canvas to work on. Have fun!

I love telephone tables. My grandfather had one. After he died, all of his furniture disappeared quickly. Too quickly. I really like your od fashioned telephone table.

Oh yeah, I'm sure it can. Can't wait to see it when you are done with it.
