Kitchen table the bottom right photo is my table (the latest taken from Christmas 2014) what to do here? How can I turn this into industrial table or just start from scratch? I like the other table right above my pic because it's smaller and faced coming from the other wall to add more room? The other photos are not mine and can be found here: http://www.pinterest.com/DebsHitchcock/organizing-kitchen-industrial/

Wood, Zink (not sure I remember what the silvertopped countertop photo is) or concrete DIY Counter tops has anyone have any of these? Im wondering which one last the longest? I also believe it will make a difference in what colors I paint my walls, Cabinets and backsplash.

    Hey Deborah, I don't know how much (if any) you've done in your kitchen. If you've gotten some things done, I'd love to see any updates. The first 2 things I would do are (1) sell your existing table and chairs, and (2) paint the walls a light neutral color like griege or very light gray. Use a scrubbable flat paint. Be sure to check out the "oops" paint at Home Depot or Lowe's, because you can get top quality paint for very cheap sometimes. Once you sell your table and chairs, go to Wal-Mart and get one of their folding banquet tables. They come in 4, 5, and 6 foot lengths, and they all fold in half for storage. You can also get a set of 4 of their folding chairs. This will give you a place to eat while you are searching for the perfect table and chairs to actually fit your space. The reason I say go ahead and sell the table and chairs is twofold: first, it is too big for your space and increases your frustration, and second, if you find a replacement, you won't have to worry about "what will I do with the old table?" As far as actually replacing the table and chairs, I would check Craigslist, freecycle, and any local community yard sale postings (check Facebook for groups in your area). Many times, someone will post on our local yard sale page "I'm in need of a 6 ft long rectangular table for less than $25" and lo and behold, someone says,, "oh, I have one." Remember that no matter what it looks like, it can probably be upcycled to work. And if not, you could turn around and sell it, and keep looking. Good luck with your redo. I share your pain...I have the same laundry room, wall, back door layout with no storage.

    Hi Cassie, thanks for posting! Just yesterday I have now installed two simple shelves. I have a neighbor thats into antiques, he goes to local sales and saw this industrial type table. There is no way easy to describe it. Im using it as a coffee station along the wall of the back door where the two new shelves are. Im still working on getting that paint-well now i have it, just gotta do it! Its grey in color. Im working on several projects at once, cleaning my garage! Eeewwww Im sitting on that table idea Im just not sure what I can do since I always have guests. Im on board with the free cycle stores, email's etc. Watching!
