Quick Lighted Fiberglass End Table Refresh

Mel and I purchased this piece a while back. When we purchased it, we knew we wanted to liven it up by changing its color.

I am not sure if this is a Frankenstein creation or if it is actually made by someone notable. There are no maker marks and I couldn’t find any info online.

It came apart very easily and painted even easier. I love the yellow and it really adds a nice pop of color.

I love the way it looks with everything. I might see if I can find a green or blue lightbulb to really shake things up!

I think colored transparent glass might look better on here than this sort of glass. I think that kind of glass would add more drama to the lighting.

On to the next project!

Panton Era Tufted Leather Tulip Base Club Chairs

Mel and I saw these chairs on eBay a couple of months back and we bought them. They were in Salem Oregon. We shot up there over one weekend and snagged them while we were up there picking up a couch, chair and ottoman set.

These had some condition issues when we got them. There were some cracks in the base that I had to fill and paint.

The fabric is in fantastic condition for its age. I assume these were produced sometime in the 70’s.

I searched all over these pieces and could not find any makers mark. These are made of thick, hard plastic not fiberglass.

The cushions attach to the plastic shell with buttons.

I think it looks great next to our space age lamp/shelf and that large Letterman.
