Small yardstick table....

Hi Everyone!  I hope you're having a great week.  It's been very busy around here getting ready for the Labor Day weekend.  My brother, my sister in law, my nephew Quinton, my nephew (the Marine) Ridge and his fiance Rachel are all coming for a visit.  Ridge is flying in on Saturday and everyone else is driving here Friday night.  My niece Vicki is staying home to work.  She will be missed but it will be a great weekend.  I can't wait to see everyone!

So tonight, I thought I'd share part two of my yardstick projects.  I had 6 1/2 yardsticks left from the yardstick trestle table that you can see here.  I used three of them to make this.
 It's the perfect size table to have next to a recliner or chair to hold your cup of coffee and remote.
 I don't have any pictures of the building of the stand (bad blogger).
 The top turned out great.  I still have to put sealer on the it but I couldn't wait to share it with you.
It's also the perfect size to hold my new candle.  I will be taking this stand to the fair in a couple of weeks.  Funny, I don't want to sell the other table but I don't have the same attachment to this one, I wonder why?  But I do hope if finds it's way to a new home.  Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Your table turned out nice. I bought yard-sticks at Lowe's a couple of weeks ago with the thought of doing a table. Seen some cute ones in blogland.
