My front entry table was looking ‘tired’. I could either choose to tidy it up some, or start over. But…. I don’t know. I was ready to shake things up a little. You know how it doesn’t really matter how nice something is, it just feels old when it’s been around too long? That.
So I collapsed the vintage ironing board entry table, and started over.
I didn’t have a clue what I’d use though! I honestly did not have one piece of real furniture to substitute. And I didn’t feel like building anything on short notice.
So I literally dragged a whole pile of crap into the front, and just started layering and stacking and playing (and laughing).
And I ended up with one gutsy junk style entry table made from who knows what!
Oh goodness… where do I even start.
Lots of layers of random stuff, such as pallet wood, a trunk top, an old table top, and a chunk of my previous bedroom nightstand.
The silver platter is totally perfect for throwing down loose change and mail.
The blue hydrangeas are from my front yard. What a shot of colour!
There’s even a barrel inside the pallet wood framework, that can hold the season’s hottest thing.
I couldn’t find my gardening gloves and flip flops and sunscreen, but that’s exactly what ‘should’ be in there instead of mittens and scarves. I’ll get right on that…
This little barn wood styled table top gets around! I’ve used it so many times over. You’ve seen it on my patio and as a bedtray in what I deemed my ‘white trash bedroom‘ back in the day.
I nearly didn’t show you, but then I figured, eh, why not? There’s nothing wrong with just playing around with a bunch of old stuff you have to see if you can make new stuff out of it. It’s free, and it’s fun!
While it may not win any refined furniture award, it would probably win a Most Gutsy From Nothin’ one.
That’s worth something, right?!
