Little black table...

Hi Everyone!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I did not have as productive a day off as I would have liked.  The wind was terrible.  I was out in the shop and it sounded like the roof was coming off.  The roof kept moving up and down slightly and the two big doors were vibrating from the wind.  It was too much to handle, so I headed back into the house to work on the things that I had in there to complete.  So not having any completed projects to share with you, I thought I'd show you the table I made for my mom a few years ago.

I made this little table using the spindles from my parents house.

Here's a picture of their living/dining room before they moved in.  You see the spindles used to separate the two spaces.  Too old fashioned for my parents.
So my dad took them down and gave them to me.  And I have made lots of things with those spindles.  I used them as table legs for the table I made my mom.
Don't mind the cords in this pic.  I forgot to move them out of the way before I took the picture.

But I took it away from the wall and took some better pictures.

The top is a piece of plywood with cord-a-round attached to the side to give it a finished edge.

I like how those spindles made it back into the room where they originally came from.  And I know my parents have gotten a lot of use out of it.  I hope to have some finished signs to share with you in the next day or two.  I have gotten a few orders for signs lately and I need to finish the one for my blog anniversary giveaway.  I'm hoping to have that done tonight.  Thanks for stopping by .

  1. Apparently your dad knows you well, offering up those spindles knowing you would be a taker!


  2. What an amazing idea to use those spindles. I love how this table turned out. Thanks for sharing it at our Link It Up Thursday party.

  3. That little table is cute! I like how you repurposed old junk to create it - very cool! Thanks for sharing it at the Creative Inspirations linky party - please be sure to come back next week as well!
