Quick change; Guest Party Highlight

23 March 2010


T
his simple but imaginative addition to an existing table 

is what sweet dreams are made of. 
 I wanted to show it to you.  

Party Highlight: Red Door Home


I spotted a piece of marble in an antiques store a few days ago and could not stop thinking about it. I have always loved marble – floors, countertops, lamps, marble topped dressers and tables. Last night while I was supposed to be sleeping I had an idea – use the marble for a top to my daughter’s night stand!


Of course things aren’t always how we remember them. Sometimes they turn out better! I went back to the store and discovered the piece of marble had been the top to an old Eastlake style side table. The table had broken but the top survived. To my delight, it was the perfect size – just a few inches larger than the night stand I wanted to use it on. I happily made my purchase and discussed with the dealer the best way to clean and polish the marble. He suggested using toothpaste for cleaning and then buffing it with car wax.  (I ended up using some polish I already had on hand.).


Here is the night stand before. It is made of oak and painted heirloom white, without and with the new top.
 


So what do you think? I love how the marble is a little unexpected and adds another texture and pattern to my daughter’s room. 
I think this just goes to show,
we must keep our eyes open when thrifting!  
You never know what treasures you might find!
Great job!
