OTHER PEOPLES JUNK!!
I have totally become one of those people who sees something laying in the corner of the yard of my husbands work, and thinks to myself “Oh what I could do with that!”. These thoughts have started to rub off on the hubs too! He is starting to see all the potential I see and is quickly becoming as creative and eager as I am! Win win!
I have been itching to get my hands on a cable spool like the one pictured below and turn it into a coffee table…
These are very common in our area (we live in a very industrious area) and we were able to get our hands on a few of them! Hauled them home, tore them down and you can make 4 tables out 2 of them. Obviously I don’t need 4 tables so we have made what we needed for our home and sold others.
After a lot of sanding, steel wool sanding and some TLC it is simply amazing how “other people’s junk” can become a beautiful conversation piece in your home!
Here are a few pictures of a couple we have done! Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions on how to create your own table!
