Last year I was on a mission to find a 50's kitchen table in good condition. Well Mr. BJ did, and it has been the background for quite a few pics on this blog (goodies for "Mabu" in Subiaco above)
I was admiring some of Painter Girl's flickr uploads from 50's Home Beautiful magazines and recognized the Laminex on my table, "Basketweave".... with the South Pacific charm!
You probably know I love recycling cool vintage laminex as much as lino.
It was fortunate I generously agreed to drive my daughter to the tram stop on Friday because on the way I found an old kitchen table on the nature strip with this laminex on the top. It's the beige cousin of this turquoise Australiana laminex I scavenged from a house reno down the road almost two years ago. Can't wait to use it!
