make me pretty – the case of the missing telephone tableJune 14, 2011
Every time i go to lamplighter (which is way too much – i can walk there from my house and they have the best Americano in the city) I would look at this cute telephone table. I loved it but I just knew it could be so much cuter.
So I asked if I could kidnap her, give her a makeover and return her home.
Then I started to feel the pressure. First of all I was re-doing a piece of furniture that belonged to someone else – what if they didn’t like it? And could I make a table that looked cool enough for Lamplighter and still fit in with the vibe of the place?
Here is the before:
And here she is after, back at lamplighter. You should go check it out there. And drink an Americano and eat a country style doughnut!
