Adorable "Old School" Phone Table-SOLD
We found this phone bench on Craigs List and decided to spruce it up a bit. Because we always have our kids in the back of our mind, we thought this would be a great little piece to have in your child's room or play room! We thought how cute would this be to place it by the side of their bed for you to sit and read stories to them at night. (The Dr. does say, not to lie in bed with them while you read...Lol!)
We took a plain bench and painted it aqua blue and then painted over the aqua blue with an apple green. We then distressed it a bit so the blue could peep through. We then made a cushion for the bench in a children's black and white giraffe material and then decided to do a different piece of fabric (black and white Chevron) on the other side. This now makes the table versatile...you could use it your room, hallway, or any nook and cranny it could fit in. We also decided to change out the knob to a crystal clear one...just to add a little flare. What do you think? Once again...forgot the before pic.
