A Dose of Retro

I love to tackle a retro piece once in a while.  This one was sturdy but the finish was worn and it was looking very tired.

Here it is in black, which is always current, with a graphic added to each of the shelves.
  • Paint is HM chalk using BM's Twilight Zone & Savvy Sisters Chalk Dust
  • Waxed with Fiddes Clear mixed with Wrought Iron craft paint
 Great, versatile table!


  1. Do you have any historical information on this 3-tiered retro table? I found one just like it in my parents' garage, but since they are both deceased, I do not know where they got it or any history of it. I plan to paint mine with muted paint tones that would mimic the 1950s. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated. Julee

    1. Julee - I found mine at a yard sale. I would guess it's from the 50's and was probably a plant stand. Sorry I don't have more specific information but thanks for asking!
