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

1 Oct



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!!!

Pink Formica and Chrome Table ca. 1950’s

1 Oct



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.

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 Gray Cracked Ice Table and Chairs

30 Sep

Although the chairs aren’t a match to the table, they are a nice complement to the mid century theme.  The chairs are in the original turquoise and cream vinyl uphostery.  I like the nice detailing on the seat backs with the contrasting square in the middle.  The table has extensions on either end that are spring loaded and add another 16″ to the length.  All the table needed was a little work to get it looking clean and polished but the chairs were absolutely filthy and we used Bon Ami to clean the vinyl which worked amazingly well.

NOTE: These items are now SOLD!

Retro Vintage Formica Table and Chairs

30 Sep

We found this great 1950’s formica and chrome  set at an estate sale.  I really liked the atomic look of the table top.  The original vinyl on the chairs was a green and blue floral pattern which was in poor condition.  The table had some wear to the surface but we used a product that brought out the shine and cleaned the surface.  We recovered the chairs in turquoise marine vinyl to match the table top.   To bring out the shine on the chrome legs we used fine steel wool and  it took off most of the dirt and rust as well.  We just loved the way this set turned out and it didn’t last long in the booth.  Someone bought it that same week.  A lot of elbow grease went into this but it was worth it.
