Chrome Table, with Red, Black and White Formica, ca. 1950’s.

This is a really nice smaller sized formica topped chrome table, ca. 1950’s.  It has a unique plaid patterned top and bevelled wood sides.  It comes with one extension leaf and could sit 4 to 6 people.  The top is in great condition, nice and shiny and not too much wear.  The chrome is in fairly good condition. Missing a couple of rubber tips for the legs, which are harder to find for the double chrome tubed legs.  We are on the hunt for them.   The chairs were purchased separately at another sale, but they do go well with the table.  They are in fairly decent condition, and the vinyl is in good shape.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

Priced at $265.00 for the set.

Please note this set is now SOLD!!!

We picked up another nice mid century formica table recently. This one has some spots on the chrome legs that are worn, but still a nice table overall.  We replaced the rubber tips on the legs and cleaned up the surfaces.  It does have one extension leaf that goes with it so it would seat six easily.

This table is at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market , 26 Mill Street, Almonte, ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa.

The price is $75.00.

Found this at an auction and was thrilled to get it.   Glass topped table is in good overall condition.

Priced at $190.00

Vintage Formica Table with Rose Pattern on Top, ca 1950’s

29 May

roses table 4

Just recently acquired this great vintage 1950’s round pedestal table with Rose patterned  formica table top.  The base is chrome and cast iron.   The top is in pretty good shape although there are a lot of surface scratches, it still looks pretty good. The cast base was cleaned and repainted.  The top was cleaned and polished to bring out the shine.  It measures 30″ wide and would suit a small kitchen or cottage.

For sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte Ont.  Price is $175.00

Mid Century Formica & Chrome Table, Green Marblelized top

1950’s kitchen table with chrome legs and marblelized formica top. This one is a keeper. We decided we liked this table better than the one we had in the kitchen and it fits in with our decor.

We cleaned it up a bit but otherwise it was  in great condition.  The previous owners had it since they were kids in the fifties.   Great find!  Now all I need are some chrome chairs to go with it.

Update:

We found some retro chrome chairs and reupholstered them in champagne coloured textured vinyl.  They really look fab!

Mid Century Blue Cracked Ice Formica Buffet

We purchased this from one of my customers who was changing her decor.  I was thrilled to get it.  All we had to do was clean it up a bit.  This is one piece I would have liked to keep but I have no room for it at home.  Too bad.  It is a 1950’s blue cracked ice formica buffet with original etched doors and chrome trim.  It is in very good condition with some minor discolouration on the top but the finish is still nice and shiny.

It is for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte Ontario just west of Ottawa for $325.00.

Yellow 1950’s Cracked Ice Formica Table and Chairs

This wonderful little yellow cracked ice formica table was found at an estate sale and needed only a good cleaning to remove a stain on the top and spruce up the chrome legs.  Otherwise it was in fabulous condition and the mechanism to open the drop leaves worked great.  Note the nice detail of  curved legs on the table. The chairs were purchased separately from a house clear out sale and were originally upholstered in an awful green colour.  We spruced them up by recovering them with yellow marine vinyl,  new chrome tacks and black plastic feet.   We proudly displayed the set in our booth at noon on Tuesday and by 3 pm the set was sold.   I was actually a bit sad to see it go out the door as it looked so cheery in the booth and would have been a great conversation piece.   On the other hand, we love to turn around a piece so quickly.

1950’s Chrome Chair Restoration Project

What a difference!

 

Chrome chair

A challenge

A friend brought over her set of  red vinyl and chrome chairs that she had purchased at an antique store.  She got them for a good price because they needed restoring.   We started with cutting out new wood pieces for the seats and backs as the old ones were mildewed.  All the chrome was cleaned using a lot of elbow grease and some good chrome cleaning products along with very fine steel wool.  Using the old vinyl as a template, we fashioned new covers for the seats and backs with tomato red marine vinyl and trimmed the chair back opening with white vinyl.   The stuffing was replaced with new upholstery felt. The old cracked plastic feet were replaced with new white plastic ones to complete the look.   We were all really pleased with the results. Pictured are the before and after shots.
