How a Pile of Old Wood Became a Beautiful Rustic Table

Thrift ideas 08.04.15
Have you ever seen a picture that you couldn't get out of your head?

That's what happened to me when I saw a photo of a beautiful rustic wood table.

Only I didn't want to buy one.

Then I spotted a pile of old wood and this is what I did.

  • this was my inspiration photo
  • this is the pile of old wood I spotted on the side of my brother's house...
  • the old wood planks were used on top and I spent $42.00 at Home Depot for a few new pieces for the table base...
  • instead of painting the whole table I did some light touch up with chalk paint on the base and top
  • I found wicker chairs to go with my wood table
  • a view of the naturally weathered, plank table top

    thanks Becky, these are very heavy wood planks too, so it's a sturdy table.
