So I have all this re-cycled wood lying around in my garage that I've been meaning to do something with for a while now.
Some from my hubby bringing scraps of wood home from work.
Some from a friend that gets old pallet wood all the time from his work,
and not to mention the old wood floor that someone tore out of a old home and was throwing away
What a Score!
When I saw the wood floor I immediately thought that this would make an awesome table top
So I put my thinking cap on and this is what I came up with.
A CUTE LITTLE SOFA/HALL TABLE!
This is where I got my inspiration from
My World of Products Catalog:
This is how I made it!
I selected some of the good pieces of pallet wood that didn't have all the knot holes and rough edges and drew out my design that I wanted for the front of the sofa table and laid my decorative scroll piece on top so I got the right curves that I needed.
See how it fits just nicely on the curve.:)
I then found these decorative legs from an old square table I was going to refinish one day just haven't got around to it yet LOL! they looked almost the same as my inspirational pic so I thought they would be a great template for the legs for this table.
I used some scrap pieces of 2x6 pine that my Husband had bought home from work and laid the legs on top and traced the pattern out.
I Then Cut them all out with my Jig Saw and sanded them down with my orbital sander.
Once I had the frame and legs cut out I used Glue and screws and put the frame together. I decided that I wanted to add a shelf at the bottom and since I still had quite a bit of the smaller pieces of pallet wood left I decided to use them as a shelf.
The smaller pieces weren't in great shape on the edges so on most of them I had to cut the edges off so since they weren't all the same width I decided on the Larger pieces on the outside and getting smaller as it got to the middle...
I love how it came out.
After getting the base all done and sanded I then needed a top and I had the perfect solution,
The Old wood floor that we scored from someone doing some renovations and they were throwing it away..:)
It need a lot of TLC but after sanding on it for a while it came out beautiful.
I then Painted the base black and gave it a slight distressed look and Stained the top with an Early American stain from Minwax.
AND HERE IT IS All FINISHED!
Cost of this...
The paint, Stain, screws and glue I already had I just had to Buy some extra sandpaper
and the decorative design on the front which cost me $5.00
