Let's have some "U" time with ABC Wednesday. After I bought my city centre crash pad by the River Irwell the other month I wanted to source a small folding dining table. Trying to avoid buying new stuff, I had something vintage in mind. I was after a 1950's table with a funky formica top (they were en vogue back then). Eventually I found one locally on eBay.
First photo- it had spent the past 40 to 50 years in a garage, with tools and paints stored on it. I saw its potential and with some sandpaper, a reduced sample pot of grey paint (for the edging) and some marine blue silk emulsion, it was easy to upcycle it to what I wanted. A bargain at £15. RedUce yoUr consUmerist tendencies, and reUse.
