I've been watching and drooling for years as farm and industrial carts have morphed and merged their way into junk lover's homes everywhere.
Finally...it's MY TURN!
I scrubbed and scrubbed, and slathered on the poly to make this "house" friendly, but ain't it a charm?!
I also added some chunky lumber for a bit more height, and to make the top a smidge wider than the wheels so we wouldn't stub our precious little toes on them.
My other coffee table was quite a bit smaller...
and has had the tarnation beat out of it over the years.
Wish I knew someone that liked to restore junk and do furniture facelifts!
Everyone knows we work on our own stuff last.
I love being able to see the ridges in the grain of the wood,and the knots and faults add such character.
Add a few things for looks...
but really, my coffee table usually has a few more things on it...
OK, you got me. That photo was totally staged to look nice too. Add some more papers, a shoe or two that have been taken away from the puppy, a playstation controller, and two or four feet. (Real feet. That's A-OK in my house.)
The rusty and crusty coffee tables aren't for everyone, but this one suits me just fine. And it seems to go well with some of my other rusty and crusty things!
