Mel and I were contacted by our friend Tracy at m.a.r.k vintage who let us know about an available space age couch, chair and table set. We were so excited to hear this and I shot over early the next day to get them.
The couch, chair and ottoman are in good shape but I plan to recover them. The fiberglass on these pieces is thick and durable.
This is the coffee table, end table and planter that came with the set.
The fiberglass has the usual yellowing from being exposed to sunlight for some time.
Restoring the fiberglass is simple. All I have to do is light sand all the pieces once the upholstery is removed. After I sand everything, I’ll need to wipe it down really well to remove any particulate. I plan to use the Rust-Olum white appliance paint to restore the fiberglass. I love this paint because it is durable and finishes well.
Surprisingly, there are no real issues with any of the fiberglass except the yellowing.
Our intention was to fix this set up for resale…BUT…you hardly ever see pieces like this, so we’ve decided to keep it……. for now.
We are thinking of doing our office in the Panton Era so these will fit right in.
Here is what the set looks like new.
It appears they also made a dinning set! Beam me up Scotty!
I’ve always thought this was hilarious!
