Mahogany Console / Dining Table

I am nearing the end of refinished furniture pieces to share from my busy summer of rescuing unwanted vintage pieces.

Today I want to share this Mahogany Console table.  The top of the table looked very much like the top of the unrestored Montgomery Ward console radio that I shared a few days ago.  This little table would be great for someone with limited space in their home.  Unfold the top and reset the legs, and it becomes a beautiful Mahogany dining table.  The top picture shows the table after I had stripped and sanded it down.  I forgot to take before pictures of most of the pieces I worked on this summer.  I was able to use the left over stain and lacquer from restoring the 1946 Majestic Console Radio to finish this table.  Now that it is finished, I am using it to replace the particle board ready-to-assemble computer desk that I used for several years.  It is a little smaller than the desk, but everything fits neatly on top, with the tower sitting on the floor.

Yes, I still use a desktop computer.  I bought a new one this past May.  I just can't justify spending the same amount of money on a laptop that is less powerful than my desktop, especially when I really don't need the portability of a laptop.


  1. You did a great job! And I love those drapes, too!

  2. Thanks! I bought the drapes at JCPenney 3 years ago when I bought the house. They always have some neat stuff.
