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.
