A Gorgeous Girl - Hall Table come Desk come Dressing Table

This girl came to me via eBay, from a lovely lady who lived on a farm. When I arrived to pick it up I was a little nervous, I had to open a gate and drive down a long drive way that I couldn't see the end of from the road. I reminded myself that I said I wouldn't pick things up on my own - not that I had anything to worry about - but you can't be too careful can you? Anyway, I picked up this girl and was very happy with my find.

I think she was originally made as a hall table, but I can see her as a small writing desk in a bedroom, or even a little dressing table. I think the table top is just wide enough, but not too wide to collect too much stuff! One day I will show you my working table and you will see what I mean!

I gave her a couple of coats of Antique White and distressed just a little for character.

  1. Hi Catherine you're a clever cookie I have just popped over from your guest post at Rachel's this morning. Now following you.

  2. so pretty! i love the soft distressing on this one!

  3. It looks better than new - found you via Redcliffe Style :-)

  4. Only a kazillion to go - I think at the end of 2013 we could count how many orange pieces we've brought back to fashionable life this year! I'm guessing it'll be a lot!!
    Love this one! Looks like a perfect size for a little wall that we all seem to have somewhere in our homes :-)

  5. orange wood...yick. looks great now! p.s. love that wall color in the back. inquiring minds want to know the brand and name?

  6. She was a great find--lovely transformation!

  7. She looks very pretty in white.

  8. What a lovely table...looks great!...come on over for a visit!

  9. I love your table! It reminds me of some pieces that I remember from my younger days on the farm. =)


  10. I love this piece, it is the perfect size for an entry!
    I just started a new link party and would love for you to come over and share your post or any social media sites. Talkin’ About Thursday

  11. She was worth the drive - turned out beautiful. I can see her with a little skirt.

  12. SO pretty and dainty....I like :)

  13. what a lovely makeover. i'm a big fan of painting everything in a crisp white! Kate x

  14. Your new table is sweet. I know what you mean about something being big enough to collect "stuff". I follow my husband around and put things away that he leaves on every surface.

  15. What a great find! I hear you about collecting stuff. I like that my end table on my side is too small to collect too much stuff. It makes it much easier to keep it tidy.

  16. What a great project! Please share it on a terrific linky – Design D├ęcor Tuesday. See you there! ☺

  17. What a great piece... love it all creamy white. I'm featuring it in the PoPP Spotlight this week.


I'd love to hear from you!
