World Market pine coffee table

Vintage drop leaf table

This item has been soldVintage drop-leaf table

This vintage drop leaf table was in rough shape when I found it.  It had layers and layers of sticky varnish on it that had to be painstakingly sanded down.  After all that back-breaking prep work I painted the top a really pretty, neutral taupe.  And the legs got a high gloss black.

It’s not too big – it’ll fit perfect in a small dining room, a kitchen, or even a breakfast nook.  Leave the ends up and you have a great family table.  Fold them down and it becomes a kitchen island, or a dining room sideboard.
