They’re also becoming very hard to find. Cart was left with original patina and not refinished. It has perfect patina, which refinishing would ruin. It was thoroughly cleaned and polished with a clear wax to preserve the finish.

Shabby Chic / Cottage / Farm House style coffee table. Top is a reclaimed cabinet door, salvaged from an early 1900s home in Virginia. Door is very solid. Original crackled paint and patina.

Rustic / Modern Coffee Table with barn board & explosion proof glass!

6 Feb

I’ve been thinking about this one for months now. Some time ago, I was picking through this huge old furniture factory in downtown Portsmouth, huge like 70,000 sq ft building, and came across 4 cool pieces of glass leaned up against a wall. Halfway covered by some old doors and other junk. I pulled one out and asked about the origin. It was a piece of an old factory paint booth from the 1930s. The guy had actually dismantled the paint booth years ago and kept four of the windows. They’re in a galvanized steel frame, thick chicken wire explosion proof glass. I thought they were cool, but wasn’t sure what I’d do with them. So I only took one. It had a thick rubber seal on the good side, which took forever to scrape off. I then took my grinder and a flap disc and it cleaned up real nice. I did some lettering on that one and hung it up on the wall in our living room. Looks like a window sign from an old store or something.

Anyway, I finally made it back over there and picked up another piece and thought it would be the perfect size for a long, low profile coffee table. Like the stuff you see at Restoration Hardware for $1000. I got a lead on an old barn that was just torn down and thought if that panned out, some barn board would be a nice base for this table. I managed to get the wood, really just enough for this table. The base is made entirely of reclaimed barn board. The outside framework is made from 2x4s, the bottom is made from slats of rough cut barn board. Reclaimed hinges, the knob on the door is off an old metal industrial age dresser. The glass is in a galvanized steel frame, super thick and I’d say nearly unbreakable. The only new pieces are the legs. All the wood was stained with a dark kona stain. I just finished this up, but as soon as all the stain soaks in, it’s going to be finished in tung oil finish to give it just a little bit of sheen and seal the wood. Not really sure what to call the style, but it’s got a pretty low profile, modern design with a rustic look. Would look great in a farm house or loft apartment.

This table is actually pretty versatile, you can unscrew the legs and it could be mounted to the wall to use as a cabinet. Add some shelves and boom.

Dimensions: 54″ long x 15″ deep x 11″ high

This will be available in our Etsy shop or for local pickup. $525

I’d LOVE to sell this locally and can offer a nice discount if I don’t have to pack and ship it!

Rustic Coffee Table with Modern Design

Repurposed Vintage Press Side Table – Industrial, Machine Age

30 Jan

I made this little side table from a turn of the century press of some sort. I picked this piece up awhile back that I dug out of the back of a shop. The owner had no idea exactly what it was used for, but it’s from the early 1900s and has a cool machine age look to it. The heavy wing nut style style knobs are threaded and spin up and down to tighten down on the steel cross bars. They flip out once loosened and the two top wooden strips are removable. This is the part that would tighten down to form the press. When I found this it had an old piece of floral colored paper between the wooden slats. You could actually put a piece of heavy fabric or pretty much anything between the press to personalize it.

The table has been left as is to keep the original patina. The metal has light surface rust, but it’s still fully functional. I added some early American style legs to it and it makes a pretty unique table.


Repurposed Swag Lamp – Barn Find Galvanized Funnel

20 Jan

Industrial / Farm / Garage inspired swag lamp. Made from a vintage galvanized metal funnel found in an old barn in Virginia. The funnel serves as the shade and was fitted with a new keyless socket to accept a standard light bulb up to 100w. The lamp is wired using approximately 15 ft. of vintage silver colored rayon cloth covered twisted wire and a vintage reproduction black bakelite plug. All wiring is brand new. Also included is an inline switch. This will make a cool accent piece for your bar, garage, mud room, farm house, kitchen or man cave. Similar to those made popular by Antique Archaeology.

I’ll add exact dimensions later on today, but the diameter is approximately 12 inches.

Currently for sale in our Etsy shop.
