Restoring A Vintage Patio Table

This vintage glass topped outdoor dining table is a wonderfully simple design and a very sturdy structure. The glass top is 5/8" thick and edged with a dramatic; wide bevel. It was $40 "as is", and after sanding the metal base with 120 grit paper and triple zero steel wool, it was spray prime painted and finished with Rustoleum white paints we had.

This table will be used on the back deck which overlooks a cutting garden and meadows, so having it white and glass will allow pretty; open views from the sun porch behind it. Storing it is easy since the top simply rests centered on the base. Luckily the porch is always partially shaded and does not need an umbrella.
