It all started with these windows that my dad brought to me. He had found them on the side of the road in the trash. There were four of them.
He brought them to me and said, “Can you use these?” Did he even have to ask? I was like, “Of course, I’ll find a place for them.” So, the first one got painted bright yellow and I added hooks and placed it near our front door, which was merely decorative since we never used our front door.
Well, these windows sat in my garage for so long I forgot about them, until we moved a few weeks ago. During the move one broke so I was down to two windows. Then I realized I needed a side table to hide my wine fridge and I started planning. Wouldn’t you know that the windows were the perfect width for the sides of the table. That made me super happy because now I could have a cool table out of salvaged stuff. So my good friend Dustin and I started plotting our trip to the lumber store and this is what we came up with.
We used pine 2x6’s for the top and the shelf and just used finishing nails to tap it in. Then we used a super thin plywood for the back to give it some extra stability. It’s a fun conversational piece in the living room and I”m in love. Plus since the wine fridge is kind of an eye sore on its own it’s an awesome disguise.
Speaking of disguises, check out the awesome video my friend Dustin made, if you look really hard you will find a cameo of me. If you get a chance, subscribe to his channel, I’m sure there are a lot more awesome videos to come.
