Ooooo, it’s time for me to reveal our top secret project that I mentioned on Monday. (Even though my SEO friendly title already ruined it).
Today Ike and I would like to introduce you to our pretty new console table.
I’ll share the tutorial with you next week but we made the top out of 1x10’s that we beat with a hammer, crow bar, screw driver, etc to give it that reclaimed wood look. The legs are made from copper grounding rods. Copper is a hip metal these days. Hipsters. The total cost was ~$40.
I was originally inspired by some hairpin leg tables that I had seen floating around. I wasn’t a fan of the $300+ price tags. I then looked into the hairpin legs which were still $20 a piece. Four $20 legs plus wood for the top equals too much dinero. That’s when I conspired with my partner in crime and we saw the copper grounding rod while wandering Lowe’s. It was a major experiment on our part because we weren’t even sure we could get something to like this to stand. Somehow we did. And we’re in love. Both of us. Nate is less into furniture PDA than I am. But trust me, he’s in furniture love.
It’s like the table was made for this spot. Oh wait, it was. Never mind.
Our farmhouse table now has a mini-friend. (Don’t mind the tv in the mirror. I do like how the owl appears to be waving though. It’s the little things in life.)
Are you digging copper these days? What about that brassy/old lady decorating scheme I have going on? Is a console table on your DIY list? Who’s excited for the tutorial?
