The Little Accordion Stool

This little table came to me via a wonderful friend I met in my former life as a HR Manager (Hi Alex if you’re reading!!). We were laughing recently about how different our lives are since those business days – I paint furniture and she is now a fabulous high school teacher. And luckily for me she has her eyes peeled and found this lovely piece for me.

Her original seat was sloped, allowing the accordion player to rest but not quite sit. I decided it really needed to be flat, and yellow. Some pieces I just have a colour in mind immediately, others stew for a while, but this one I was certain. ASCP English Yellow to be exact   It’s such a great pop of colour, and just makes me smile. I would love some yellow highlights in my own home; I’ve got a few pieces earmarked to get some yellow paint in the near future.

You can see the original picture below – it’s such a great shape!

I wanted loads of character to reflect its history, so instead of sanding all those divets and marks I kept them, and distressed the piece to show them off. I think she’d be perfect as a side table or even a bedside table. My daughter can even use it as a little table to eat her lunch!

So – what about you? Do you have an accent colour or highlight colour in your home?
