March 14, 2009Melamine On The Walls
There is so much to learn about Mid-Century style. Every day I head over to Retro Renovation, read one of Pam’s posts and think, “I didn’t know that.” Then I go to the local thrift store and I see a cool glass or a piece of furniture and I think, “Wow, that’s new.”
And now, something else that blows my mind. Vintage melamine panels for the wall.
For those of you who, like me, are just discovering the joys of melamine and melamac, here is an ad for baked melamine tongue-and-groove panels for the walls. I didn’t know you could put melamine on the walls. I always thought veneers were either wood or a resin type plastic, but here I am learning something new. I wonder what colors the old Marlite used to come in? If they would have had pink, I would have been all over it.
If you are interested, Marlite planks are still avaliable today.
And for those of you who are old hands at this and are rolling your eyes, bear with me. I’m new.
