Here she is after being cleaned and (mostly) de-rusted. She was painted with Rustoleum Fern, then antiqued with craft paint in Iron Oxide. The veneer was lifted a little on the top but just needed a little glue to reattach it, then the top & two drop-down leafs were stained with Minwax Jacobean. Last, a couple of coats of Satin Polycrylic for protection.
The casters on the legs are original and I like the rust on them so much that I decided to just wipe down the wheels with soap & water, then put a sealer on the rusted metal to preserve the look.
This is a very sturdy (it could hold a Smith Corona again) & portable small table and I have to say that I LOVE it! The industrial look of it combined with how versatile it is make this one a keeper (for now).
