Bird on a Wire Telephone Table

I rarely find amazing pieces on eBay, especially in my price range, but I think this piece is an exception!

Her previous owner had originally bought her to makeover but was busy with a house move and decided to pass her on. Lucky for me she was in great condition and just needed an update.

I love the blue grey colour - it's Class Blue by Dulux. I was originally going yellow, and I bought both colours home, but once I started I knew I'd made the right choice. And the yellow is destined for another project ;) Then she sat for another few days before I decided I'd add some birds, I think they're a cute detail that add a bit of character.

While I think she'd be lovely as a telephone table, or a hall table, I also think she'd be great for this...

  1. Hi Catherine. That's a very cute little bench and yes, when my youngest was smaller she was an absolute nightmare getting her shoes on!
    Have a great week :)

  5. That is gorgeous Catherine...did you paint the birds or is it a decal? They definitely finish it off nicely. Great idea to use it as a shoe-putter-onner seat, and yes my 6 yr old is still shocking, it is mainly my fault for making him wear cute chuck taylor boots, he can't get his foot in them himself!

    xx Karen

  6. LOVE the birds! Gorgeous piece of furniture and a rather spunky little man :)

  7. Seriously the greatest idea! I so love the birds on a wire, they are so great for this style of table!!

  8. I meant to comment on this the other day and something happened and I didn't, but I just wanted to say that I love this and the birds are so sweet! I have seen an old telephone table at an op shop in town and it has been there for ages which is really unusual for this particular op shop, but it has that shiny faux wood laminate stuff or whatever it is they had back in the 70's and I just can't see what I can do with it.

  9. It looks amazing.
    Your little one is super cute too ;O)

  11. Adorable! Love the color! The birds are just perfect for that project :)

  12. so precious and oozing lovely!

    hope you'll have a moment to stop by, and i'm hosting a giveaway as well today:

    peace to you.



I'd love to hear from you!
