I am on a roll with these mid century modern beauties! They are so much fun to re-do!!
This is the first Dixie-made one that I've come across. Although, this isn't the first one
to be in such rough shape! Have a looksie,,,,
What in the world do people do to the tops of their furniture??! I mean, come on!
Do they sharpen their ice skates on them??
Woohoo,,She cleans up rather nicely!! Gotta love wood. It's so forgiving!
Walnut is gorgeous when it's refinished!!
Can you believe the difference in the top??? Some sanding, and some nice dark stain,,,,,,
Ok.....Notice the bottom left. There was a big chunk missing. I knew I would have to paint this
edging but I was hoping that I could fill it in with my wood epoxy without it being too noticeable.
Not too bad. If I didn't tell you, you probably wouldn't have even noticed!
Please excuse my horrid garage floor. Paint out here much?? Hmmmm...uh, yeah,,whatever...
Also, Notice the original peg legs??? Well, I happen to like the hairpins better.
It just adds so much more dimension to the finished piece.
This is the 3rd time I've used these and I get them from
DefineModern.com. Daniel makes these himself. All sizes and for all sorts
of pieces of furniture. He is an awesome welder. Check out his site and blog,,
he also has an Etsy store,,,Check it out!!!
This is how easy these legs are to apply!
(And if you're wondering why I took off the originals, someone else had messed them
up and attached them in a different spot)
These are the 12" (1/2" diameter) stainless steel legs. They are so simple
to attach. Easy Peasy! Thanks again Dan!!
Yes, I had custom pillows made from the same fabric I used in the drawers!
One last look inside at my cool coral fabric!!
Linking up at my fave parties!! :
