Vintage Metal Table

.
A few months ago I found this old metal table in my Grandparents basement.  I loved it and knew it would be perfect for my craft room.
.
Other than desperately needing a new coat of paint, the table was in pretty good shape.
.
.
.
I sanded the table a bit and then applied two coats of primer.
.
.
For the finish coats I used Krylon spray paint in Dover White with a gloss finish.
.
.
Now the table is finished and in my craft room.
.
.
My Keep Calm print was already hanging in the room.  Unfortunately, with the table placed underneath it, it looked way too high on the wall.  I considered moving it down but really didn't want to deal with a nail hole.  I decided to hang the "D" (for my last name) up.  I still wish the print was lower but the D does a pretty good job of taking up some visual space.
.

I'm enjoying the extra storage space - you can never have too much storage in a craft room, right?

  5. I love it! It looks great in there! I also noticed your Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts book on the table. I've tried to check that out from the library a few times with no luck. What is your opinion of this book? I anticipated it to be amazing, but I'm sure I've built it up a bunch :).
    Thanks for your sweet comment the other day!

  8. Love the table! Wish I had grabbed more furniture from my grandma. I am trying to price our the shipping of a my grandma-in-law's pedestal table my sister-in-law no longer wants.
    Love the print too, I have a small version in my laundry room. Hope we can see the rest of the craft room!

  18. Cool! Your restoration of that vintage metal table makes it perfect for your craft room. With my love of metal furniture and the medieval interior design, I had myself a hand forged iron tables for us to place or food when we watch movies, while there is a iron family tree with the images of my family are displayed there.
