One day Mr. LMB & I were driving down the road in the middle of nowhere & spotted a whole bunch of “junk” for sale. Naturally, we stopped & among all of the boat parts & tools was this rustic old beat-up table. The hubs and I loaded it up in his jeep & I was happier than a bird with a french fry… or something like that.
Sad news, I didn’t get a picture of the dining room table before we took it apart to fit it in the jeep, so just picture a dining room table in your head & if you are struggling, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the blog post for more of a visual.
The first photo is the original base that we cut down to size & then discovered it was too small. We used 2) 1×2 boards on the bottom cut to 40 inches to maintain a level top and attach the two pieces.
Using the pre-existing hardware and support we simply attached the base right to the bottom of the table. Well, the gray was already on the base… we really got lucky because the color fits perfectly into our home! The coffee table that was in our sitting room before was cute, but it wasn’t this big beautiful piece of furniture that this one is.
Let me know what you guys think of the table in the comments below, find me on Facebook, & chat with me on Instagram!
