End Table

Sally Phillips Art Designs

This end table was manufactured by the Baumritter Corporation which was a household goods business established in 1932.

It became a furniture manufacturing company in 1939 with a line of Early American furniture known as Ethan Allen.   In 1962 the Baumritter Corporation had the largest line of furniture in the world.  It was known for superior and quality workmanship and became the Ethan Allen Company in 1972.  The underside of the end table has the official Baumritter Corporation Colonial Furniture stamp.  The paper label is missing but this style appears to be from their 1940-1950’s line.   When I found this table it had a terrible paint job over an ugly but quality piece of antique furniture.  I removed layers of ugly yellow and pink paint from multiple paint jobs and cleaned up the classic hinges.  Using quality chalk paint I applied three new layers of paint.  The base coat is a pale blue, then an antique white finishing with a soft blue I custom mixed to be reminiscent of a favorite pair of faded denim jeans or garden overalls.  I painted a vintage style floral and vine design across the top and finished with buffing several coats of soft wax.  One side of the top is hinged making it convienent for storing sewing, crafts, magazines or even all those television remotes.

Shabby chic design is generally a cottage style look of vintage furniture with signs of age and wear and tear or newer pieces that have been distressed to achieve the same look.  To distress this end table I used a method of mixing water, soft clear wax and paint.  I then sanded down through all the layers at various depths to expose the various layers of paint.

I took this shabby end table to a shabby chic piece that will look great with any home decor and is available for only $150.00.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your
    next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
