Reclaimed Wood Bar/ Table


Once again we are trying to create more space in our comfy Queen Anne condo.  We have a window in our living room that has an amazing view of Lake Union, the Fremont Bridge, and on clear days we can see the Cascade Mountains.  

We had this clunky, turn of the century English pub table and chairs pushed up against the window, and we NEVER used it.  So we decided a bar/ table with stools would be a great way to conserve space, and we could sip coffee and enjoy the view.  

I told my friend Susie, the owner of Boot Girl Warehouse in Fremont, that we were looking for a thick piece of reclaimed wood.  She said, "there's a piece of wood that's been sitting outside the shop for over a year, and you can have it".  



So my FBP and I started this project with a gorgeous, FREE piece of rustic wood that had been weathered perfectly.   We found a set of hairpin legs on Craigslist for $50, and we basically had what we needed to make the table.

 

Susie's Boot Girl Warehouse carpenter, Adam helped my FBP make a "frame" of sorts out of scrap barn wood he had laying around. 

 

Plus, Adam helped my FBP make some cuts in the wood with some larger tools that we don't own.  Yeah, I think the boys had some fun with their power tools!  



This is the "frame" they made from scraps of old barn wood. 



My FBP attached the "frame" to the large piece of reclaimed wood. 



Then it was time to attach the legs. 



This is the finished product!  It's so rustic, and we love it!  



It looks great up against the window...




Now we can enjoy the view from our comfy lil' Queen Anne condo.  



We are searching for two industrial style bar stools around 24 inches tall to go with the rustic table.  They are REALLY hard to find, but we are resourceful AND persistant.  We will find something!  

Ooooh, and the best part... this rustic table matches the upcycled coffee table my FBP made out of antique milk crates.  Remember this? 



I told my FBP that I'm not going to be satisfied until he's built every piece of furniture in our condo!  HA!  Thankfully he's a good sport and loves to build cool stuff!

Love Fremont (and miss it!)
I used to live in the basement condo of your building! (That is, if you haven't moved in the last 2ish years!) I LOVED that building and that location!
