Atomic Yardstick Covered & Redesigned Coffee Table

Hey folks!  Here's my biggest custom yardstick project to date.  Each and every yardstick piece was manipulated in some way by distressing, coloring, dingying, or battering.  Haha.  

The original table was a pick that my friend Tracy ran across and was severely neglected and in bad shape.  The trim was shot the legs and base structure was in pieces with chipped paint all over it.  The original formica on top was marred and discolored.  It has the original stamp on the underside "140 COFFEE TABLE" and was made in California with the stamp "Union Made" by a local number that I can't make out.

The size is 66" long x 29" wide x 15" tall.

This custom item, along with my other creations, is available in the GadgetSponge Etsy Shop and at The London Gallery in Shreveport, LA!
