Bedside tables with a 50s feel

Bedside tables with a 50s feel

These were the two round ends of an old dressing table which required quite a bit of carpentry to modify and repair.  Lots of sanding then treated sides with a textured vinyl with a metallic-look for added drama.  Sanded laminate tops and used a matt gold spray.

I'm loving that textured vinyl @Wendyjoyhall! It really adds dimension to the pieces. Was it challenging to apply?

 

You've done an excellent job breathing new life into these pieces, and I'm sure they'll have pride of place for many years to come.

 

Great work.

Thank you.  It was quite easy to fix to a well sanded surface.  I can't keep them all so they go to new homes and I use the $ to start the next one.  It's fun.

Hi @Wendyjoyhall

 

Can you please tell us where you sourced the metallic-looking vinyl? It is such a fantastic-looking material, I was very convinced that it was pressed sheet metal nailed onto the body of the cabinet. That matt gold spray really enhances the overall look of the table.

Hi Eric

Spotlight! I keep my eye out for interesting vinyls. Quite inexpensive too as it is usually 150cm wide.
