Upcycled 50s garden table

made- and upcycled- in Sydney Australia; 1950s & 2015

Another fine example of Trish’s upcycled 50s garden tables. Don’t you just love the butterfly magazine rack and the new black glass top?

Trish stripped the rust/imperfections from the steel frame, painted it with anti-rust and then three coats of matt black enamel paint. The glass is made to measure- and who knew that black glass is three times the price of any other coloured glass? Still- it looks fantastic; it has beveled edges and it’s safety-glass. New rubber feet complete the table.

This table is not for sale: it’s a keeper. It’s just the size for an inner-city terrace- and as it’s weatherproofed it has the added advantage that it can be used indoors or outdoors. I’ve teamed the table with an old industrial flask and eucalyptus leaves and a 50s school map.

  1. Actually Edwina, I knew. I picked up a cute little retro telephone table with a chipped black glass top and nearly fell over when I got a quote for a new piece. About $300! Needless to say I decided to live with the chip… That little table is gorgeous. I’ve got a thing for metal furniture too, but I head in the white direction. Cheers
