Flea Market Flip Favorites: The Liberace-tastic Ritts Table

Let me start out by saying that I LOVED everything we made on HGTV’s Flea Market Flip.
While I was so proud of the bed-to-bench and another bench was my baby, I absolutely loved this lucite table by the Ritts Company. It was a last minute buy at the end of the day (super marked down!)

It was in pretty rough shape, even though it had been in storage near Palm Springs for decades. Can’t you tell?

Talk about dated: this fabric was a nightmare!

Here’s a photo of one of the chairs when we were just getting to work:

We loved the lucite and the shapes but hated the colors. We had a vision. We found some gorgeous white faux crocodile to cover the cushions with, and determined that the set should be ALL WHITE!!!

The term “Liberace-tastic” was born (how appropriate with Beyond the Candelabra coming out!?)

After: totally luxe and worthy to of being deemed "Liberace-tastic"

It’s kind of a joke at this point, but I’ve been called a “design hoarder” more than once. Who ended up taking this baby home? ME!

It was gorgeous with topped with my crystal candlesticks. Eventually, I sold it to another rehabber. He wanted to paint it all black and use it for poker night in his man cave… go figure!
