Vintage Telephone Table

Just made it home last night from a quick but very fun trip to California (except when the 49ers lost), where we got to meet our brand new grandson, Leo…I cannot tell you how precious he is…cutest baby ever! Of course, it was right back to work (heehee, can you call it work when you have so much fun doing it?) this morning, finishing up on this great little vintage telephone table Nick found for me last week. I finally decided on the Old White and Duck Egg combo…(It may be my favorite colors together). I love the way it came out…McKenna was like “what’s that hole on the top for and why does it have two tops”? To which I replied, “that is where the telephone wire went thru that you plugged into the wall and the bottom part is for the phone book”…and then she says “Whats a phone book and you had to plug in your telephone”? LOL…youth…gotta love ’em! Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the finished table…





About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
