Today's DIY Love post is by my husband Chris. He is a full time picker who buys mid century furniture, industrial items, and makes repurposed furniture. You can read all about his finds and creations on his blog and you can purchase them at his Etsy shop. His guest post is about a reclaimed wood coffee table he made. Take it away Chris!
Chris: Welcome to my reclaimed wood coffee table tutorial. This project is very affordable compared to what you might pay at retail for a similar table. I got all of the wood for $13 at a salvage yard and I took the hairpin legs off of a bench that I bought at an estate sale for $15.
What you will need:
Approximately 32' of 1''x4 or 1''x6'' reclaimed lumber
80, 120, & 220 grit sand paper
Minwax wood stain
18 gauge nails
10''-12'' tall hairpin legs
Air Compressor & nail gun
