Custom Made Coffee Table

Custom Made Coffee Table

It's been almost six months since we moved into our new house and I can say it's finally starting to feel like a home. Furniture that had been ordered months ago is slowly starting to trickle in and much to the dogs' disappointment, rooms are beginning to fill up, making their evening wrestling matches a bit more challenging. I've also been working on a handful of projects here that have recently finished up, and I can now proudly showcase in my home.

Factory Cart Coffee Tables

Factory Cart Coffee Tables

If you've been following me since the very beginning, like waaay back, these factory carts may sound vaguely familiar to you. If not, you can catch up on all the details here. Over the past two years, my collection of factory carts has slowly been dwindling down. The biggest challenge with refinishing these carts is the mess they make, requiring me to work outdoors, weather permitting. Actually, that's probably the second biggest challenge.

If you've been following me for awhile now, you've probably picked up on the fact that I have a style that I usually trend towards. Stained tops, distressed edges...that's me! I think most people tend to fall into a pattern for several reasons. For me, it's because 1) I happen to be a fan of that style and I'm not going to create a piece that I don't like and 2) I know it's popular and it sells. However, every now and then, it's good to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. And that's just what I did this week. I teamed up with an office furniture company, Relic Furniture Gallery, to transform one of their dated Butlers Table into something a bit more modern and up to date.

Factory Cart

A couple months ago I got my hands on a collection of original factory carts. If you don't know much about these carts, let me tell you, they are in high demand right now. The industrial look is so popular at the moment and these carts are the perfect piece to give any space that vibe. Although they are used for a variety of functions, I most often see them being used as coffee tables.
