The most versatile Table


The narrow side Table, no more than 5 to 6 feet long and 12 to 14 inches deep.




My table by the window where I paint. Perfect size, made of rod iron, easily cleaned.




Left over, hand painted tiles from Italy. I painted the wooden trim to look like marble.


A small wooden table to hold a few items to make an awkward space look more interesting.



Krieger and Ricks of Springville, Utah manufacture beautiful gilded frames for very large paintings. I selected the legs, then the skirting and then ...


the center medallion. And a new table was born. I then sketched the side table using measurements that had to be exact so that the side table could fit under a 200-year-old gilded, and very large Mirror from Argentina.



I painted these tiles after an old Spanish design, makes this table much more interesting.



This table spends most of the time outside in the summer, ready to be moved wherever needed.

  2. Hi Theresa,
    Marbling is such an easy and quick trick to make a "silk purse out of a sow's ear".
