Winter Project #1

I've already posted this on a few other boards, so sorry if it's a repeat to some of you. But I can't help myself, I love it!
My Dad & I found this in a local antique mall. I wasn't looking for a kitchen set, but I ended up taking this home as a Christmas present from my Dad, because it was way too cool to pass up.

It's white enamel with black silhouette signed by Mochi. It has TWO tops. The first one has side panels that you can push under to make it smaller and then there is an extra rectangle table top that you can use on this base. It has curved chrome legs and 4 wooden chairs. There were some dings in the porcelain on the square table and two of the chairs have been repaired, but otherwise it is in great condition.

The current paint job is kind of sloppy and a dull off-white. My Dad is going to tighten up the chairs for me and then I'm going to repaint the chairs and the wood under the table a bright shiny white with black lines in the grooves on the chairs.

My kitchen at the cottage has old painted wooden cabinets with just a slab of painted wood on top for the counter. So I'm going to see if I can use the large rectangle table top as a counter on the kitchen cabinets. Now I'm thinking that I've got to pull that junky Berber carpet out of there and put down black and white checkered vinyl tiles on the floor!










The second table top



The chairs have cool grooved details which I'm going to pinstripe black.




So far the chairs have been reglued and everything has been lightly sanded. Now I'm waiting to get over my cold so that I have energy to paint! This will be a nice Winter project, but wait until you see what else I got to work on this Winter! (photos will be posted when I am able to once again brave the outdoors)

Nice! I recently purchased a 40s/50s red and chrome formica set in near mint condition and I LOVE it. I love seeing others.
