Unique Chairside Table with Lamp

This unique piece was given to me by a friend who was clearing out his garage and came upon this table with a lamp built into it. I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it and wasn't sure exactly the direction to go at first, but after keeping it in my garage for a little while, I became inspired when my daughter mentioned how small the table was and how it would be perfect for a child to use. I decided then and there to create something fit for a princess bedroom! Let's take a look at the Before pic:

You can see how difficult it was to imagine something sweet and pretty when looking at the Before pic, right? I decided on a pretty pink from Benjamin Moore called "Rhododendron". It reminds me of pink taffy. Because the drawer had been warped from moisture damage, it was sanded down and covered in a delicate script fabric, complete with a gold, crown graphic, for an added "royal" touch. The old, dated lampshade was switched out for an elegant, modern lampshade in a complementary script fabric. I also tossed the scuffed drawer pull and added two clear knobs for a final, feminine touch. The end result is pink, princess charm:

Client Project: Child's Table to Coffee Table

Recently we have been working on a project that was once used as a child's table, our client wanted to take this great "garbage picking" find and turn it into a coffee table.  The table had been painted many colors and had quite a bit of wear, it also separated down the center on a track. 

To take the table down to an appropriate coffee table height about 4" of the legs were removed and self leveling feet were added.  The top was completely affixed and no longer opens in the center.  The table was hand-painted in a beautiful shade of blue and was antiqued with a dark brown glaze. 

This table may have changed its purpose but the classic character is still there.  I had a lot of fun working on this piece and hope the family enjoys it in their home!
