I Just Got This Vintage Modern Corner Table By Mersman Last Weekend. It Needed Some Cleanup But I Found Some Time This Week Before Dropping It Off At My Booth At The Green Shag Market. Status: Already Found A New Home.
This was so dusty and neglected when I found it last weekend. I could see that it had the potential to be beautiful again and fill somebodies living room with vintage modern loveliness...so it had to come home with me. I just couldn't leave it behind. It's classic and understated design means it will easily fit with any number of other styles.
I got to work right away on cleaning this up when I got it home. I was on 3rd shift (or
"midnights" as I usually call it) last week and that left me awake and at home during the
daytime for parts of most days last week. I took advantage of a couple of those days to
work on some projects (and do some thrift shopping). This really just needed some love.
I cleaned a thick layer of dust off of it, rubbed it down with Howards Restore-A-Finish
and then topped it with some Howards Feed-N-Wax. It's not perfect, but it looks really
nice. Too nice to strip and re-finish as far as I'm concerned but if someone wanted to take
the time, it surely is a good candidate for such a treatment. There are so very few dings and
only the lightest of scratches.
You know...this is supposed to be a corner table between a Sofa and a Love Seat but think
about this: TV / Media stand. You could place this table in the corner of the room and toss
your fine flat panel television up on top of that upper tier and some of your electronics under
that leaving some open area up front to keep your remotes...you know...so you can find them
However you'd like to use it, if you are interested in picking it up this fine, all wood Mersman
corner table I've put it in my antique mall booth (number 44) at the Green Shag Market in St.
Louis city. I'm stocking up on all sorts of extra items for the Green Shag Market Parking Lot
Sale too. The Parking Lot Sale on October 20th will give me an opportunity to bring even
MORE items out for you to peruse even if it's only for one day. Mark your calender for the
Parking Lot Sale, but be sure to make a little time to visit the Green Shag Market proper
before then to see all the good treasures gathered within. I'm in there every weekend and
am always surprised by how much comes and gos!
