Vintage Industrial

Vintage Industrial (Gina - did I get your attention?) is everywhere these days.  Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and all over blogland.  I must admit I love the look.  If you've been following my blog for long you know that I added a fantastic antique Lineberry furniture cart to my living room earlier this year.  There's just something about the metal and wood together...which is why I was so thrilled to find this treasure this week:
A wonderful old typing stand but with a wood top!














The design of the legs and casters is awesome.  There is a lever and when released the legs are stationary on the ground.  When you push the lever the casters lower and it rolls freely.






I just love the wood and metal combination.  I stained the top (it was in sad shape) but left the vintage metal completely as I found it.   Do you love this look as much as I do?

Because of your post, I'm viewing my old typewriter table (same design as yours, only all metal)with new eyes. It's tired gunmetal grey. Maybe pink or aqua are the right new colors.

Cool find, Stephanie! I bet you are going to keep this one for a while!

Very nice. I think that typing table could be very useful as a computer desk too. Looks great.

Yes it caught my attention! I saw the title in my "Blogs I'm Following" in dashboard and clicked right on it. Of course I love that looks because I have a similar one; my doesn't have a wood top (that is awesome though) and I had to paint my white since it wasn't it good shape. I love it though!
