It's no secret that I have been longing for a vintage red formica table. Well, this weekend, I found a vintage blue one. At a yard sale. I could NOT say no.
I looked around the internet trying to find out what this color was called and found very little. I guess this color is rare! If anyone knows anything about this color or table, I'd love to hear from you! I believe the pattern is linen.
I thought about putting it in the booth to sell... for about two seconds. I think I'll keep it - at least for a little while. The booth is pretty full anyway.
The legs come on and off easily and there's a 12 inch leaf.
The table is a roomy 54" x 30" (with the leaf).
The sweet little table not in perfect shape. It has plenty of signs of use. For the most part, I don't mind - that's just added character.
The edges annoy me. This one has a tan laminate around the edge. It's not in good shape and it's very unattractive. I think they will be replaced. Add one more thing to the TO-DO list.
I'm not sure where it should go. I want a red formica table upstairs in the loft. I don't think the cornflower blue color would look very good with my loft floors, which are a shade of turquoise. Maybe I could use it in the laundry room as a folding table... but I'm still thinking of using the vintage ironing board there. Or maybe someplace unexpected - like the guest room - that idea is growing on me. Oh, I just don't know. For now, it's on my porch. It my Pumpkin blingin' table.

It's the last one for 2010 and will be open all month!
