It's DIY time! I'm actually really happy 'cause I'm launching a new section in Hommie, the HommieDIY. I'll post some DIYstuff that I make and, according to my opinion, they are amazing! Today's post is about a handcrafted coffee table made from scrap materials. So, here's the story: My friend needed a new coffee table and I needed a reason to create something. That's what I call 'perfect timing'! I suggested I could make one that would be stylish, custom-made and cheap. I had a rough idea of a simple industrial-like design in my mind but I didn't know what to use as a table-top. So I discovered a pile of old scaffold's planks in our storage. It was just the perfect supply and - the most important - it was free. I took one of them, cut it in half, sanded it properly, stained it with pinkish-white wash and then assemble it together with the base. The base is a simple construction from iron plumbing pipes. I screwed the pipes together and then I painted them white, as my friend requested. I'm really proud of it and I think it fits well in this cosy-modern-feminine house.
