House Beautiful: Get the look.
Have you seen the latest issue of House Beautiful? Mine came last week and I am really excited to sit down and really flip through the pages over the holiday break (2 and half more days!). It looks like a good one. When the issue arrived, I immediately noticed something special in the picture on the cover. Towards the back of the room, there is a GORGEOUS gold console table with white marble top. Can you see it? Just move that chair out of the way. It’s an over-the-top traditional piece mixed in with what is a pretty simple and natural room. Such a cool blend.
It reminded me that I just happen have a similar table stashed away in my storage unit. I’ve had it for years and it needs a good home. I would love to use it but never seem to have the right space for it. And so it sits in storage.
It does need a top. I often see finished scrap marble pieces with similar profiles at antique stores and markets. I also think the gold could be toned down just a bit. An umber glaze to accentuate all the details would go a long way. But these 2 added expenses are nothing, considering I am selling the table base for just $40.00.
And if gold isn’t your thing, paint it bright orange.
If you would like to get the look (for less I would imagine) please email me. I am happy to send you measurements, additional photos and/or a Paypal invoice if you are interested.
