Typing Table Transformation

I transformed this typing table
into this bright and fun side table.
All it took was some chalk paint in Paris Grey and Barcelona (after cleaning off the contact paper goo on top),
a little stenciling in Pure White and Florence and Paris Grey,
and some clear wax to change a dilapidated piece into something fresh and new.
I left the base as I found it--I love the wheels!

  1. Drop leaf tables are so handy and practical and the metal typing table takes all that one step further by being almost indestructible :) Love the colors and stencil patterns you used, just so cute now. Have a great holiday weekend.

  2. I like what you did with that! Nice job. ~ Maureen

  3. Your typing table looks great becky! Loving the colors you chose. I have a utility cart that someone (moi) covered entirely with contact paper in the 70's or 80's. I started removing it earlier in the spring, and then I just stopped! hmph!

    maybe I'll dig it back out when it cools off.

    have a great/safe holiday weekend!

  4. That looks gorgeous! I love the stencilled details, they really pep up the piece!

  5. LOVE your choice of color how fun!!

  6. I Like, great color! I also did a redo on these cute typing tables, fun!

  7. that's just super cute. I'm loving the addition of popping orange in my house right now.
    thanks for the inspiration

  8. Wow, that is beautiful! I love the wheels too!

  9. Oh my gosh, I LOVE this little table. I think nesting tables and fold-out tables are such a smart choice, and this one takes the cake!

  10. I love the orange you chose! And the stenciling is great too! Fab job! I'm pinning:)
