A Sports Table With a Twist of Cuteness
Like I’ve said before, most of the furniture I paint is salvaged, but this little telephone stand that I discovered at an unfinished wood store is too cute to pass up! There are so many things you can do with it! So many styles! So many themes! So many…okay, so I need to calm down! But really, the possibilities are endless!
Recently I had a customer from the University of Oklahoma e-mail me and ask if I could do a table based on a college dish, (yes, like a plate you eat off of) that she had fallen in love with. Yep, I get strange requests! Well, I am always up for a challenge, so she sent me a picture of the plate and off we went. Just to mix things up even further she sent me another e-mail that said, “Hey could you put some Zebra print in there as well, because that is what my room is mainly decorated in.” “No problem!” I said, as my face twisted into a grimace. I always say sure, without really thinking about it, but when it comes time to actually sit down and paint, I’m like, “what?”
But, if you wanted to purchase one in the shop, and wanted it masculine, I would refrain and not include the wings, or perhaps Maggie might have to actually hide the hearts and wings!
