Project Coffee Table: Completed!

coffee table and tablescapingRemember when I posted sometime last year that I wanted to make this coffee table? I finally got around to ordering the hairpin legs and buying the table top last month. Then after a weekend of unsuccessful attempts to find a power drill, my friend Maria lent me hers and the table was completed. It still needs to be oiled every few days for the next two months, but so far I have to say, I’m totally happy with the results.

For these photos, my sister Jenny (pictured above) helped me with the styling and “tablescaping”.  She says, “We wanted the coffee table to be the focal point of our living room, around which our friends could gather to sip single origin espresso and trade tips about holistic vets.” Ha! We had so much fun being tablescape artists for the day.

The perfect DIY coffee table

hairpin legs DIY tableFirst of all, please excuse my lack of posts the last couple of weeks. In between work, a couple of short trips to Portland and Los Angeles, I sort of abandoned my poor little blog. Since I haven’t had time to work on any exciting projects, I thought I would write about this amazing DIY table by Sylvia Song! It’s definitely the next item on my “things to do” list. I’ve been in need of a coffee table for years now, and this is THE one. I’m gonna head over to Ikea this week to check that they have the table top, then I’m gonna order the hairpin legs here.

Favourite Things Lamp

I can’t stop thinking about this lamp by Chen Karlsson, a design studio based out of Stockholm, Sweden. Its simple, beautiful, and personal  since the little cut-out allows you to put any one of your favourite things inside. I am in serious covet mode right now and I can’t find any info on where to get one of these things!

Alphabet Drawers!

It’s gray and pouring rain outside and not helping my already blah mood this afternoon. But when Rance sent over a link to this amazing piece of wood furniture awesome-ness, it immediately brightened up my day. I love letterpress, especially large woodblock letters. Combine that with a storage unit….even more love! This chest of 26 drawers by Kent and London would be perfect to keep little treasures in or to hide the little random knick-knacks in need of a home.
