A friend of our s was getting sick of her dark wood, condo-sized side tables in her bedroom and saw our post of Keith’s (and therefore also OURS) post on these little coaster tables we made and asked if we could make something like the below for her.
While the folks at Humboldt Art Dept made a lovely version of a larger table on their own…
We decided to have 4 small tables attached per table instead… and we were thinking that this would still be able to fit nicely on the nail legs we get from Home Depot (yes those are 12″ nails we used for legs. Which meant using tools and cutting stuff.
And we thought that maybe then we could just add in more nails to better support the structure… but we were wrong. The nails looked dumb and Beetlejuice-esque but without the Harry Belafonte party in the shrimp cocktail. So Keith then thought, what about wood doweling instead (you know, it looks like a curtain rod?) on the exterior of the 4 sides? Also easier to level as opposed to getting it right with like 10 nails. Ew.
We weren’t sure once the tables were put together if we needed to add in more colour or take some away… But our friend we were making them for has had about enough of the wood look for the moment…
So we painted the rest of the sides with white gloss spraypaint (and some of that leftover gold paint from our stumpy art project) to lighten things up a bit and voila!
Up next! Side tables for dogs! (jk, but at the same time we live in a pretty dog crazy area so….)
Happy Canada Day, everyone!
