Nothing But The Best For This Tired Telephone Table

nothing-but-the-best-for-this-tired-telephone-table

I have a great support group of blogger friends and we were all lucky enough to get to try out Fusion Mineral Paint. Their tagline is “Paint It Beautiful” and I have to agree. I used mine on this tired telephone table that needed the very best!

Fusion Mineral paint is sponsoring this post and I was given the product by them in exchange for this post.  But…all opinions are 100% my own.  You can see my full disclosure here.

This is the first time I had even heard of Fusion Mineral Paint and I couldn’t be more impressed.  The paint covered really nicely and only had to do a quick second coat to cover just a few areas.  There was absolutely no bleed through which, if you have been reading for a while, drives me nutso!  They are an employee based company and employ people instead of machines all while taking into account the environment.  Here is an excerpt directly from the website.

We provide our customers with only the finest ingredients that address their concerns for the environment without compromising quality, durability or performance. It’s about making the right choices and doing the right thing, from our raw materials sourced locally, to our in house custom made packaging and hand filled products, we support our local economy.

We are very proud of our products and have stood behind them for over 25 years

I love learning about these companies and being able to experience their product through this blog.  It’s the best job ever!

Let’s get to this little telephone table.

Telephone Table Makeover

To see the whole picture you need to see how this little telephone table started out.  I have added in some affiliate links to this paint and some other products for your convenience.

It was tired and worn and ready to be pretty again.  You know what?  Maybe it isn’t even a telephone table but the small square shape the the one drawer usually indicate some sort of telephone stand/table.

You can see after one coat below that this paint is a winner.  The first color I used was the Bayberry Green.

It is the perfect green for my house but this guy is already sold so I will have to find another project to makeover.  I know I can probably find one close by.  And this color looked so good on the telephone table.

If you think you may have some bleed through Fusion does offer a product called Colour Blocker. This would also help if you are going from a dark color to a light color.  It may save you a coat or two.  Even though I did not need it, this still may be a good option if you are trying to cover a mahogany or cherry that are known for the bleed through.

For the drawer front and the top I chose Lamp White and I love it.  It really is a pretty white.  LOL  Two quick coats of the white was all it took.  I love that.

Pretty right?

Now for the very prettiest part.  The after photos  I lightly distressed it.  You guys know how much I love to distress.

I painted a drawer pull from my stash to use.  I used these on my TV Stand  a while back and I love them.  It looks so much better than the wooden pull that was there originally

    Oh how I love Bayberry! And it distresses beautifully, too. This piece now looks like the paint is the original finish that has grown old naturally, but will still have the great waterproof Fusion finish. I totally love that about this paint. Great job. Susie from Chelsea Project

    Your distressing looks perfect as if it was bought at a store and the drawer pull is great and cool you had it in stock. The colors look soo nice. I love telephone tables and want one like this now too. I used the Fusion paint and like you say, I also had no bleed through with a wood piano painted white.

      I sort of wish I could keep this one. LOL! I love the way the distressing turned out and the fact that it doesn’t bleed through is always a good thing. Thanks for stopping by.
