Rustic Dining Table and Arrow Light 3/12/14

I started this project with an old school house table. I loved the solid oak base that was hidden under all the thick black paint but the MDF table top, with it’s many names carved in it, had to go. The width of the base had to be changed to accommodate a top […]

Crate Board Light and More Crate Furniture 2/25/14

I got a large amount of drawers that a retail store was getting rid of.

The size of them worked great with the crates but I didn’t like the boxes and fronts, so I built new frames with pallet boards and used barn wood for the fronts.

I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to […]

Repurposed Sewing Machine Cabinet 2/12/14

To repurpose this sewing cabinet to a hutch I used these wall hung shelves for the top of the cabinet.

Although the width was a great fit, the height did need to be cut down a bit. I added trim under the shelves and at the top then backed it with reclaimed tongue […]

Repurposed Depression Mechanism 2/5/14

I found this railroad cart at a yard sale this summer. It was quite a challenge to make it into a useable piece because it was in very bad shape and some of the parts where missing. A section of the side had been cut out so I had to use a section of the […]

Upcycled Furniture and Drifwood Light

Buddy went beachy with his latest light project. While camping at a lake in Idaho this summer, we found this awesome piece of driftwood. He hung it from rope tied with anchor knots and used cool porcelain sockets for the Edison bulbs.

Now doesn’t this make you think of a cozy beach […]

Repurposed and Upcycled Dining Set and Light 12/11/2013

I started this project with two, too small tables, a rectangle and a round.

I used the base of the rectangle table and turned the top the opposite direction. After cutting the round table top in half, I added the halves to the ends of the rectangle. Now it’s an appropriate size […]
