A few weeks back, I posted a “Chess Anyone” table makeover where I took an odd sized table and turned it into a games table.
This is the “before” picture:
The round table in the middle was the table I made into a game table.
Now I want you to take a very close look at this picture.
Does anything immediately jump out at you as being interesting?
Come on! Seriously… be honest!
Well, when I published this post, my niece Sheilagh, a certified interior designer and amazing quilter, emailed me within minutes!
All Sheilagh wanted to know was, when I purchased the tall round table, did I get that weird little table in the background? The one with with two tiers and the angled legs???? So much for my amazing post, all she could see was a potentially fabulous Mid-Century Modern Coffee table!
I did indeed acquire this table at the same time and it truly is the treasure of the lot!
Up here in the Great White North (Canada) we have had many amazing furniture manufacturers. Canadian-made really means something especially if you are looking at Mid Century Modern furniture. And this piece is no exception.
I love researching furniture origins. This piece was built by Snyder Manufacturing in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. This city is not far from Toronto. It was in business for 114 years! and closed in 2004. Imagine! 114 years!
When Heywood-Wakefield was making its name in the US, Snyder was doing it in Canada.
Back to my estate sale purchase, YES I did get this cute table and soon it will belong to Sheilagh AND she has the plan! Who am I to argue with an designer!
Stay tuned for the transformation!
