Lucky Nathalie in France happened upon this vintage military table in need of some love (and elbow grease). The industrial vibe was exactly what she was looking for so she set to work restoring it to its former glory.

What an improvement! And Nathalie’s new table also works so perfectly with her cherished collection of Eames chairs (she calls them her “loves.”)

She sanded off the old paint and rust, then hand polished the raw metal with an anthracite wax to give it that gleamy finish. Amazing job.

Merci Nathalie!
