'The Supremes'- Set of Vintage Nesting Tables

A lot of love and labour has gone into these but my, was it worth it!!

When I rescued this set of tables, they were in good condition but were coated heavily in layers of varnish... and because of the the shapely, spindly legs on them, I had to sand them by hand!

Here's what they looked like before:

They were very dated and just crying out to be given a second chance in life! And now they shine like the stars they were born to be!!

-colour blocked sides

-stripped, sanded and waxed wood tops

-pretty original engraving

And these were heavily inspired by this image of a fifties inspired interior in Homes + Antiques magazine:

and this vintage radio advert from 1958:

And seeing as there's three of them, I couldn't resist naming them after retro stars The Supremes!
