What do you think of this new sofa table?
Since moving the couch with Matthew Mead and friends I really felt like we needed to have something behind it. I had been on the look out and also thought about doing something with pipe or metal. I don’t know about you but I like the look of galvanized metal. LOVE it actually.
Luke thought he could build something. This got us to thinking of possibilities and looks. I realized I wanted dark wood but with a metal top filled with patina.
Conor also helped out in the building process. Just had to share how much he loves helping us with projects 😉
Here you can see just how rich the top looks against the tufting of our Chesterfield sofa:
The glass hurricane is filled with oyster shells collected with the boys on Humarock Beach. I love collecting them. I adore how this table looks in our living room, but I feel like you can see more of the details against this paneled wall.
Would you believe it if I told you that this isn’t real metal?
Friends keep touching it expecting it to feel cool as metal does. I created this beautiful effect with Fusion Mineral Paint.
I love the x detailing Luke created on the sides!
I’m actually sharing all the details on construction and faux finishing tips over on eHow! It is my first contribution to them and you can read the full tutorial here. I’m so excited to be sharing ideas there. Hope you can pop over and see our tutorial for How to Create a Faux Galvanized Metal Table!
