This is a vintage tabletop from a Wendy’s fast food restaurant. I always liked these when I was young and always wanted to take one home with me. I am sad the restaurant doesn’t use them anymore, but I was elated when I finally found one for my own. For those that don’t remember them or never saw one they have have images of old catalog ads displayed on the laminate. I use it as an end table now.

What Allee has to say about this:
Although I’m a card-carrying junk food addict, Wendy’s was never my cup of tea. And this old catalog ad pattern that popped up as wallpaper in so many bathrooms starting in the late 1960s always made it hard for me to pee. But the fact that you have the actual tabletop is most impressive. Of course, what advertisements for things like liniment, shoelaces, fireplaces and toilets had to do with Wendy’s – well, I guess the last one makes sense – is anyone’s guess. Which makes it excellent Kitsch.
