Book Page Table

I found this wonderful little table at an estate sale.

It was very dirty and the veneer was peeling off, but you gotta love those legs.


The veneer came off very easily.  I painted the table a creamy white and covered all the veneer areas with the pages from an old hymnal.

I used some of the torn pages, and I love the way it turned out.

The staining of these pages was so deep, that I didn't use any dark wax over the white paint, I liked the contrast.

As usual, I tried to find a spot for it in my house, but no luck.  So it went to the antique mall today.

Linking to these parties:


  1. Suas modificações tornam as peças realmente mito poéticas. Linda!
    Tenho um projeto com colagem branca e azul sobre um móvel azul, ainda irei realizá-lo. Parabéns.

  2. It looks gorgeous! I like the addition of the book pages. I am working on a piece that is veneered and I wish I could say it was coming off easily. Some of it peeled right off and some if it will never come off!!
    I do love the legs on that table, I bet it sells quickly.

  3. I love it, Janet! Putting the book pages on the drawers is really a nice touch!

  4. Cute...and I would say buy, buy to it...someone is going to snatch that baby up quick!!

  5. I painted the table a creamy white and covered all the veneer areas with the pages from an old hymnal on last weekend. I finished it very hardly but at the end it looks very beautiful and I enjoyed fully.
