The One About the Rustic Coffee Table

What is one to do when they inherit their grandfathers’ armchair and doesn’t have a table to go with it? Well, you create one of course! I had some pallet wood leftover from my last project which I had wanted to use up. So I set to work, working out how to maximise the resources at hand.

Once pulled apart, and cut to measure, it took another 7 months before I would revisit this project.

Fury likes to inspect my work ensuring the nails are straight and the base balanced.

I didn’t do any research on wood stains, so I ended up with something that totally covered the raw look of the wood. It matters not though, the stain covered up the pallet labels and some odd stains. Did you read that? The stain covered up the stains 😀

To match the coffee table I had to stain the armchair, which we can agree was in dire need of an upgrade.

And when all is done, dried, and dusted, I have myself a lovely little space to enjoy my morning coffees.
