Map it Out

By Amy Lenhardt, Revitalized, Northern Virginia at Revitalized in Burke, VA.

Water damaged and wobbly, this little table was covered in old magazines at an estate sale. She hadn’t seen the light of day in years. Like Cinderella, she was waiting for her moment to shine. 

This slim little table was given a bold coat of luxurious red and washed with Lamp Black to add distinction and depth. Her body and legs were wrapped in General Finishes High Performance Top Coat. She was topped with a vintage inspired world map and a glossy water proof coating. The drawer is lined with an authentic old world map print and she has her original brass hardware. She can be used as a small side table or, with both leaves up, can function as an intimate dining table for two.
