Remember when I talked about making a new art table
for the Studio?
And you wondered which color I would choose?
Okay. You already knew what I would do….
But at one point the Studio looked like this:
And we brought in some IKEA shelves to build the “legs” of the table….
And the Formica® Brand
contacted me to see if I wanted to work on a project with them? For their new Formica®
Laminate Jonathan Adler collection?
And I was all like, whaaaaat? YES.
(Sorry. I’ll just recap the play-by-play, in case you didn’t read my other post
And it was like a blogging matchmaker put us together—because I had been thinking about a laminate table top for my studio for a year! And then Formica®
Brand sent me free samples of the product? And I had to choose my favorite one….
My table is done!
And it’s orange. And I totally love it.
Here’s the Before and After:
The original table-top was a hollow construction door. And now it’s a glossy, fitted surface.
I wasn’t sure how the glossy finish would look in the room but I LOVE it—the kids can’t even draw on it! The marker lines just wipe off! That is HUGE, and fantastic.
And so is the fit.
The table sits right on top, like the lid of a gift box.
We had a cabinet maker come to the house and measure for the table top.
Then he made the table of MDF in his shop, and covered it with Formica®
Laminate—in Orange Lacquered Linen
, and brought it back to my house.
I seriously love it!
I replaced the metal legs on the cabinets with caster wheels—and the jury’s still out on that. They look kind of “messy” to me. But I love the mobility. We’ll see how that part goes.
….and we’ll see what I do with the chairs. Cause you know I love oilcloth
For now we’re all enjoying the new look….with fresh projects and art designs.
So….are you loving laminate now?
It’s so much fun!
