America's Next Top Work Table Runway Show

Pin It

Here she is! All cleaned up and ready for the runway! She still needs a little TLC, but she is much better than she was when you saw her covered in dust and grime yesterday. She's ready to strut her stuff on the catwalk!

THE RUNWAY POSES...

THE HEAD SHOTS...

{cue the fan to get that hair blowing...don't forget to "smize" :) }





BEFORES AND AFTERS...

THE SURPRISE FIND...

{Oh, no! Dickie is missing his 1950s essay on "The March of Modern Medicine." See Dickie run. See Dickie tell his teacher that the dog ate his homework. See Dickie get an "F." Poor Dickie.}


THE REVIEW
I'm not sure exactly where the lab table will go yet. Maybe a workstation, maybe a kitchen island, or maybe a bathroom vanity. It will depend on how and where it fits! I will definitely keep you posted! Yes, she still needs some TLC. Every great model needs a good wax job. I'm sure it will do wonders for those legs!! :)

  3. Hey- Did you know I live very close to Kewaunee and my hubby used to work there? AND we bought a house there one time-but that is a long story! Anyway...Kewaunee Mfg. Company made fine furniture...and if you'd like the original building where she was made is still standing. Maybe you would like a picture of that to tuck in her drawer? Hugs-Diana

  11. I love that, it's similar to mine which was a science classroom table and I blogged about it more than a year ago here:
