For individuals who never sat in a phone booth or experienced a rotary dail telephone this piece of furniture could be a mystery. I started with some amazing black and white upholstery that I purchased at an iconic store. Paris is my favorite foriegn city so adding the stencil was a no brainer. I used 2 coats of General Finishes Lamp Black paint to cover the chair and Snow White for the Stencil. I consigned this chair and it sold in less than 24 hours. Yipppee!
