Go Retro!

I found this magazine table at an estate sale.  It was a disgusting color that I'll just call Dijon Mustard.  I thought I had a "before" photo but for now it's MIA.  It's called a magazine table because of the magazine rack on each end and it could easily sit between two chairs as the drawer opens from either side for easy access.

It's a great, solid table most likely from the 50's, so it's gone retro!

I wanted to add to the funky vibe, so I decoupaged the top and bottom of the drawer with ads from a vintage (1942) magazine.  To protect the top, I sprayed it with 2 coats of acrylic sealer and then brushed on 3 coats of Polycrylic.  Sure wish I had that "before" photo!
