This striking side table began life as a solid wood vintage Early American style nightstand. I painted it a deep navy blue and created faux marble surfaces in shades of grey on both the top and lower shelves. This is a trompe l'oeil piece of art work, where everything looks real enough to pick up! On the upper surface I depicted items collected on a visit to Japan; There is a sophisticate navy colored fan, and a pair of chopsticks encased in a fabric sheath, secured by a braided knot. I added three glass marbles through which you can see light shining. I folded a crane and a swallow from paper purchased in Tokyo to use as models to paint the two Origami birds on the lower shelf. This unique table is currently for sale for $450 plus shipping. The top is 14" X 16" and it stands 27" tall. Please contact me through this site if you are interested in this table or perhaps a custom painted item.
