1940’s Art Deco enamel top table
This old table was donated to my Furniture Restoration class for me to use with my students. It had been left outside with the metal legs in the ground. They had all rusted out and needed replacing. Problem was, they were bent metal and getting them made was impossible. So, ingenuity was called for. I bought 1” metal conduit from the home center along with some gliders for the bottoms and duplicated the wooden blocks that secured the original legs to the table, using them to secure the now straight legs on the bottom. I taught my students how to re-create these blocks and then paint and distress them to look like the originals. They were impressed how they turned out. Replacing the wooden drawer bottom, something we consider easy, is completely new to them.
Here’s a video on the work I’m doing with these students – http://woobox.com/d6auju/vote/for/1966256
Thanks for looking!
