Yet another awesome graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I was missing the laying hens that I had to give up when we moved to town and couldn’t resist putting this one on a pillow too.
You can find the image here: http://thegraphicsfairy.com/free-vintage-chicken-graphics/. An if you’re interested in purchasing this pillow check out my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/listing/187840683/linen-pillow-cover-with-chickens
My husband has been asking me to buy him a bedside table since we moved to our new house. Buy one – right. Silly boy should have know I was gonna build something. I went on Pinterest and knew immediately that I wanted something industrial. When I have time I am totally going to build this: http://diyshowoff.com/2014/01/03/pantry-organization/. This pantry was my inspiration for my table project.
We had some left over butcher block scraps from our kitchen that I was able to use up and only needed around $20 in pipe and fittings from the hardware store to build him a table. It turned out so well that I already bought the supplies to make side tables for our sunroom.
Was so excited about how well it turned out that I didn’t bother to take the stickers off before posting. Might be there for another year or so….
All that I used on the butcher block is danish oil. Don’t really have a preference on brand but this is what I used: http://www.rustoleum.com/en/product-catalog/consumer-brands/watco/danish-oil
Here’s a picture of the pipe and fittings that I used. All together it only took me an hour once I had the supplies to actually build it.
This is half of the parts or one leg. I also added caps as the “feet” of the table. I used all 3/4″ pipe and fittings.
