In Need of Care

8.30.2011

Here is a look at my latest find that will be getting a makeover very soon.

Anyone know where I can get some of this tiny bead trim?



As you can see it needs some tender loving care. Of course the man at the antique store cringed when I told him it will be getting painted.


See you tonight for Wow!

  1. Love the project Kim!
    Here in the UK we can ask our (friendly) dentist for the stuff they use to make the mold for false teeth, and take a cast from a good piece of beading. Then cast it in plaster of paris and adhere in place of the missing beading. Maybe you could make a mold from plasticene?
    Hope that helps!

  2. Hey Kim I'm all moved in here in Dacula and I'm loving it. That is a great table, would love to go shopping with you someday or make a trip to get Chalk Paint. :-) I was wondering if BB's for a BB Gun or small beads/fake pearls would work wince your going to paint it. (That part can always hid in the back) Have fun and email me sometime. Lsfasig@yahoo.com

  3. Kim, this table has great potential. Have you tried
    Van Dykes Restorers at vandykes.com
    Bet they will have something to help.
    I am joining your party this week I finally got my bedroom finished.
    Hugs, Ginger

  5. Just wondering if you could tell me where I can buy the Anne Sloan Chalk Paint. Do they sell it in stores or must it be ordered?
    Thanks.

  6. I think I have that exact same table! Hubby is insisting on getting rid of it. I can't wait to see what you do, maybe it will change his mind!

  7. I LOVE it!!!! I was searching for an antique drum table for months...before finding one similar at TJ Maxx. I'm still keeping an eye out for one though.
    I can't wait to see how it turns out...I just know its going to be beautiful!

  9. Did you go back fot this table at The Green Bean? It looks like it from here. I wouldn't worry too much about the trim. Once it's painted, it probably won't be as noticable and after you add accessories to the top, it won't be the focus.

  10. Oh my I love it! Such great details! Maybe you can mold it with kwik wood for the bead trim I don't know how that will work though just a suggestion.

  11. Love your table Kim! Since you are painting the table, you could go to the craft store and find some small beads...in the jewelry area or in the wedding area like some small pearls. Just find some about the same size and glue them on. After gluing you may want to rub over them with a bit of caulk and rub the access off. This will help fill the recessed areas between each bead...then paint.
    Can't wait to see it!!!
    Blessings,
    Cindy

  12. You can make a mold with the air-dry clay that you can buy at the craft store, then make a plaster replica strip from the mold. Can't wait to see it finished!

  13. I'd just but a tube of white caulk- barely cut the tip off the end and make dots on saran wrap till I made enough the size of the ones on the table-- let them dry- peel them off- glue to table edge, then paint:)
    just be gentle if you decide to distress in that section- it wouldnt take much pressure to break them.
    good luck.

  14. I see that pearls have already been suggested. I used them on a piece I had years ago, and you couldn't tell it wasn't the real beading. Great find. Love the style. Hugs, Marty

  15. What memories for me, Kim. My mom had Duncan Phyfe pieces when I was growing up. I think my sister or one of her girls have the pieces now. Same feet! ;-)
    Can't wait to see how you transform this.

  16. So funny when people tell you how to refinish the furniture you buy from them. I inherited a great piece, but was in horrible shape. All my siblings were shocked when I said I was going to paint it and paint it I did. I finished it in time for my Mom's visit recently and she at least loved it. (It had been hers.)

  17. Thank you so much for all these suggestions. Not sure what I will do, but I know I will be painting this.

  18. Oh, that's a beauty, and a prime suspect for paint. :)

    They often have the smaller molding at the craft store for making dollhouse goodies. Be sure to soak the trim so it will bend more easily. Then let it dry before painting.

  19. Looks like a fantastic project~ bet it will be beautiful all painted! I would try the hardware store for the trim or since you are painting it- maybe those online shops that sell appliques- I think one is called Do it Yourself Chic on ebay but not sure.

  20. It has great bones already, but sure needs some TLC. You'll work your magic on it and it will be gorgeous!

  21. Love these little Duncan Phyfe round tables. I've painted a few white and distressed them, they never stay around very long in my mall space. Yep, a little TLC goes a long way. I'm anxious to see which color you choose. xo

  22. I sure can see the potential in this piece Kim,, I know it will be a knock out when you get it all spiffed up. My first thought on the beading was to use a little caulk. Good luck, can't wait to see the finished table.

  23. Love the drum table. Does it have a leather top? I have been trying to talk my Mom out of hers for years. They are really hard to find.

  24. Kim.. great find there! If your going to paint it.. then go into a fabric store and match the trim with what ever looks like the same shape and size.. use some clay to mold the shape and bring it with you... You will never know the difference once painted! I so love a challenge!
    Good luck! I'll be back to see the finished piece!

  26. You are going to paint her anyway. Find a costume jewelry bead necklace the same size glue it in place and paint over it.

  27. Kim- You can make it yourself! Get some polymer and use it to make a mold by forming it over some of the trim that is in good condition on the thing. Let it set a bit and then carefully remove it. Then use some plaster of paris to fill the mold with...let it dry and then removed the polymer. It should work just fine. I replaced some edging on a mirror I had that had broken off. Once it is painted you will never notice it. xo Diana

  28. Kim, you should check out my post on how to emboss on wood using wall spackle and a cake decorators bag. http://froufrugal.blogspot.com/2011/01/how-to-emboss-wood-part-1-piping-style.html
    You could use it to pipe in some beads to match what's there and once it's painted, you will never notice the difference.

  29. I'm thinking I saw that kind of trim at Joann's, its unfinished with the raw wood stuff in a bin with dowels...I think!!!

    I have three tables with the same legs and feet, yes, they need to be painted!!! hugs...cleo

  30. I know you're going to make it gorgeous!!

  31. If you can't find maybe you can fake it with either hot glue or caulk. It will look great painted. It would be a lot of work to restore. I painted mine that is very similar, left the top stained.
