make me pretty – typewriter table

February 20, 2013

This typewriter table was another Vienna, side of the road rescue, from my friend Corbin. Her husband almost claimed it as his own but Corbin rescued it again and it made its way down to richmond.


I took off the desk top and spray painted the legs a dark red. Then I painted the wood table top with chalk paint and added the number 24. I distressed it, waxed it and put it all back together. Don’t ask me what the number 24 means, I just wanted to add some vintage numbers.








  1. Very cool! How are you doing?

    • I’m good. Five weeks till baby time! Still at the antiques mall. How are you?

  2. very fun! i love the red legs! my husband has tackled a few of these as well. here’s one he refurbished with reclaimed wood: http://scrapandsalvage.wordpress.com/2012/05/10/60s-typewriter-table-refurbished/

      • Thanks! –SAS
