Awkward spaces – that was the story behind this Table (post #7) – awkward in terms that no standard piece of furniture would fit in it. Too long, too short, too deep, too … something….Nothing new under the sun. So the only solution was really diy, once again.
The first attempt was to build table out of the old fence posts. This, however, turn out to be a rather bend table as the wood had taken its toll in outdoors use with wind, rain, sun….moving ground. Buying new wood, as a second option, would have come with a quite price tag.
So thanks to a friend’s *lightbulb* moment – I got introduced to Musgroves (http://www.musgroves.co.nz/) where I bought an old door. What really made this door perfect was the fit – it needed no cutting at all as it fitted the awkward space precisely. I painted it white in order to bring the light in the room. The legs were a $1 find from the online auction – also believe it or not – being the perfect height for the cupboard underneath.
piece #7 is recycling in its best – second changes for unwanted pieces.
