Before and After: A Crusty French Bistro Table Turned Chic Entryway Piece

Before and after stories are so much fun! I bought this table originally for a photo shoot many years ago. I really didn't think I would see it again.

We painted it blue for an advertising campaign. I recently came across it when visiting a friend's studio. He wanted to know if I could use it. It looked rough. The roof had leaked on the particle board top, the paint was chipping and it was rusting.

I said yes because I know I have a "thing" for powder coated metal. I brought the table home and somehow shimmied it into its future space to look at size and scale.

I decided it could be an inch smaller on all sides. I called a powder coater I know and got a quote. When I brought it to their shop they explained that they have a metal fabricator that they work with that could create a top for me. I went for it!!

I love the way a crisp white can modernize even the most classic shape. I am especially interested in antique forms married to modern finishes. Im so excited to see it done and in place. Now I need to source a rug!
