The Little French... Uh....Plastic Table

When I first spotted this table, I immediately gravitated to it, totally drooling over it's sweet curves.  Upon closer inspection, I was quite surprised to see that it was not made of wood, but a molded plastic!  Well, the top is formica and pressed board, but nonetheless, it's a heavy and quite sturdy table.  So....I took the chance.

You wouldn't know at first, huh?

Closer look at the legs....

Nice "carvings"!

Now look at it with a couple of coats of paint.

I chose to use American Paint Company paint on this one.  I used Rushmore as the base and topped it with Home Plate.  I wet sanded it to expose some of the Rushmore.

I gave it several coats of clear and dark wax.

I would have to say that this is a trash to treasure happy ending!

You can find this at our newest location at RVA Antiques!  Opening this weekend!!  More information and sneak peek tomorrow!


  1. WOW, you would never know that it's not wood. I think you did a terrific job on the table. I have a little table project I am going to be working on also.
    Have a great weekend, Susan.
