Vintage Permanized Mengel Side Tables

Hi Friends,

This two beautiful little tables were another thrifty find from Goodwill!

They are from a recognized mid-century furniture manufacturer, “Permanized Mengel Furniture” from The Mengel Company of Louisville, Kentucky.

I was so happy to find the label still attached to the drawer’s interiors, and being able to do some research on these pieces of mid-century furniture.

I can’t properly describe the surfaces of these tables. They seem like a kind of laminate with a burnt wood look; the pics below¬†don’t show the actual color. They are solid and a little heavy.

To renovate¬† these tables, I started by sanding with a 220 grid sponge. One coat of shellac was applied to prevent any bleeding, as I was not sure how this “wood” would react. After they were dry, two coats of Behr Premium Plus (paint and primer in one) were applied.

On the front of the drawers, a dry brush technique with Waverly chalk paint in Plaster, was applied.

These pulls are from my stash of pulls, from a set of 4, that I bought from a home catalog sale.

For the inside and outside of the drawers, I used Waverly chalk paint in Agave, and lined the base with a vintage wall paper I purchased at a garage sale.
