A knock-0ff


iron table 006

Like everyone else in the world, I too am in love with the industrial look. While this isn’t a look that would work in the rest of the house it is just right for our den or aka “Man Cave”. Mr. D. doesn’t ask for much when it comes to the decor of his room other than it be comfy and not too fussy with a lot of,”stuff”. The moment I saw the bricklayer table I knew this is just what I was looking for. However the price tag of this piece was not in my budget. The more I thought about it the more I realized that if we can renovate a house down to the the bare studs we surely could make a table similar to the one I was in love with. So, a plan was born…I scribbled some dimensions out on a piece of paper and Mr. D. welded the frame together and then added the weathered boards. Total cost of project: around $30. I haven’t decided how I will accessorize the table yet……..decisions,decisions!
