So it is no secret I love cool and trendy finds when it comes to decor.
I love looking through Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs and Restoration Hardware catalogs.
But it stops at looking because even though I love their decor, I do not love their prices.
I have even given them some nicknames.
For example, I refer to Restoration Hardware as Constipation Hardware as that is what it gives me as I walk each square foot of their stores.
I go in trying to understand why they would charge 50 bucks for a wooden bowl the size of an orange.
But I just cannot get past it.
While perusing a Restoration Hardware dictionary textbook catalog a few months ago, I noticed a theme.
Industrial, letters, wheels.
In no certain order.
It could be a pillow with letters on the front of it with industrial looking edges. (Read: frayed)
Or maybe a cast iron letter A.
A big fat heavy one with an industrial finish. ( Read: vintage)
How about a coffee table with wheels made of industrial waste with the letters T R A S H on it.
Just kidding about the last one, it didn’t say TRASH. Duh.
You get the idea.
So imagine my excitement a few weeks ago when I waltzed into my local Goodwill and saw this baby:
Immediately I thought that it would make a perfect kitchen island.
I was really afraid someone would swoop this up and I was not willing to take my chances.
Which is very clear to see when you look at all of my other projects up close.
There went my cool table top.
There went the funky industrial look.
There went Timmy.
Which totally cements my “Timmy is controlling my family from the grave” theory.
I put three coats of poly on this for easy cleaning.
