So I can't get the hubby to help me make a copper lamp for my work desk, but when he decided he wanted a new outdoor table - Wola!! One is made in a week (go figure)..
But I really shouldn't complain.. I am so in love with this new table I have been
making the family eat every meal outside on it!!
As we have a old meets new/industrial feel to our home.. and we love to entertain..
we thought a large outdoor table would be perfect for those nice summer nights..
We used recycled timber battens for the top and industrial metal piping for the base..
(it surely is a heavy thing - definitely wont be moving it around!)
I have used the Replica Eames chairs for my dining table inside, so I decided to get a couple of the armchairs for the outdoor table..
That way you can use them at either table for extra guests!
We scored this amazing (although weathered) old church pew from Gumtree for $75 bucks.. I adore the 4 leaf clover cut outs at either end..
The hubby is still making another timber bench seat for the other side..
It does show though with a bit of muscle (it took 4 guys to move),
creativity and love you can always bring life back to things that are
old and compliment them with things that are new..Enjoy..
