ReInvented Vintage Metal Typewriter Tables

Vintage metal typewriter tables have been on my radar lately.  I still remember having a typewriter while in school, pecking away all my reports, hoping I did not make an error, or the whole thing was goofed.  Even with the corrector cartridge, it made an awful presentation.  This bygone tool has left us with these absolutely cool tables that need another purpose.  Just because we all don’t have a typewriter in our home, it does not mean these versatile pieces can’t be used in another way.

Enter, ReInvention!  I am loving this word (even though spell check does not!)  This is exactly what I found when I did a little online prowling.  People taking this once very one-specified piece of furniture and in a way inventing a new purpose for it.

LAPTOP TABLE

One of the more utilitarian purposes I found was for a laptop table.  This is today’s typewriter afterall, so why not?

SIDEBOARD

Using a typewriter table as a small sideboard in a dining room, especially if you live in a compact space, makes for a great look.  I love how this one is placed in front of a chalkboard wall and balanced with a fun word art canvas.

NIGHTSTAND

Sometimes bedrooms, especially here is Southern California can be really tiny.  Fitting a typewriter table next to the bed is a great way to add character without sacrificing a lot of space.  I love how this one boasts a wire basket on the bottom shelf giving more room for storage for books and such.

This one has one of the leaves up for a little extra table top room for the bed side with a woven basket below.

BAR

By putting up the side leaves and stocking with glassware, ice bucket, & drinks, the typewriter table becomes an instant bar cart.

SIDE TABLE

Pairing a typewriter table with a modern chair gives a nice modern vintage feel.  It is a great side table that can easily be moved if necessary.

As a side table, the typewriter table gives a modern living space a nod to the past and giving an old piece new life.
