just a couple of little projects this week but we thought we’d show off the countertops in their natural habitat Cheers from the Just For Pretty offices
This table makes use of some sturdy metal legs and 1x8s on a heavy 2×4 frame. The planks are spaced just enough to allow rain to drain off. The look is completed with some affordable outdoor mesh chairs from the At Home store.
My husband’s uncle made several of these desks for this school-age kids in the family. Decades later it was still in great shape under years of dust in an old barn. We restored it and added a little color and think the result was great.
We got one of those TVs you hang on the wall and needed a place to put the gadgets we plug into the television. So this simple 2×4 and 1×4 entertainment center provides light yet sturdy storage for all that stuff!
An old wire spool and some plumbing pipe provided the basic form for this coffee table. It’s super sturdy but easy to move thanks to locking steel casters on the bottom And a matching end table…
We made two of these for the kids to use as homework and craft desks. They also come in handy for an impromptu lemonade stand or yard sale table.
These were made for a work surface, so we used standard stain and poly. For a food-quality surface, a food-quality resin can be used We fastened two craft-board pieces together to make a standard thickness tabletop. The sections were joined at an angle to form an L-shaped desk, sitting-height section, and cabinet topper.
We got the opportunity to take some photos and collect some planks from a family barn that was being torn down, so it seemed like a great opportunity to make something fun for our kin who own the barn. This was the result, along with some fun photos from the day.
