Antique Retro Enamel Top Dinette Table



A 'before' look at The Antique Retro Style Enamel Top Dinette Table.






The metal legs had rust, old paint splatters, and grey spray paint.










The wooden frame before work began.














Metal legs received 2 coats of chrome paint with a paper rub between coats to remove excess powder.


















The wooden table frame in clamps. Metal leg in the back ground in between two flat top saw horses getting sanded for rust removal.











Re-coating legs with chrome powdered spray after hand sanding to remove rust.













The joints of the table frame have been re-glued with angle blocks. Many of the original blocks were missing.















Table frame is ready for assembly.


































Metal legs are ready to be rubbed and buffed before assembly.






































Legs attached to refinished frame.




















Assembly of pull out leaves.












































This lovely table is now ready to go home. It has a cornstalk and squash design in the red art work. My guess is late 40's or early 50's.
