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!

1972 Cal Style Furniture Mfg. Dinette Set

1972

Mel and I found this set on Facebook. It is unapologetically chartreuse/lime green.

It is so Brady Bunch and is such a flashback to 1972!

This set is in remarkable condition. The upholstery has just a couple flea bites.

I think this set is green gold!

The seats are comfortable and I love the button upholstery.

The backs of the chairs really pop with the button accents on the back.

The top is formica with a chopping block pattern. This set came with two leaves as well.

As you can see, it was produced back on March 21, 1972. Also, on that day back in 72′ folks in the US were listening to the chart topper “A Horse With No Name” by America

All the chairs still have their age. It appears someone loved this set very much.

They took such good care of it and it shows.

IMG_7261This set needs some detail cleaning work and it should be good to go!
