Hang a table on the wall

How to hang a table on the wall, well at least part of it. Last week I went into a consignment shop not really expecting to find anything. Just when we were ready to leave I looked down and saw the top of this tile coffee table. I was instantly enthralled with it. With no price I asked how much, the price was a little more then I wanted to pay. My thought process went like this: The price is high enough that I can’t flip it, I have no room for a coffee table but I have to have it. Then it hit me, ditch the ugly rattan legs and hang that sucker on the wall.

ON THE BACK
To live is to sink roots. Life is possible only to the extent that you find a place hospitable enough to receive you and allow you to settle down. What follows is a sort of symbiosis: Just as you grow into the world, the world grows into you. Not only do you occupy a certain place, but that place, in turn, occupies you. Its culture shapes the way you see the world, its language informs the way you think, its customs structure you as a social being. Who you ultimately are is determined to an important degree by the vast web of entanglements of “home.”

Danish teak chair restoration

A friend gave me this old weathered Horsnaes teak chair that was in pretty bad shape. So, here is my Danish teak chair restoration. This is my first attempt at doing something like this but hopefully I can share some tips with you that may help with your restoration.

As you can see the chair was in really bad shape. It look as though it had been sitting outside and the cushions were covered in cat hair. A funny thing to note is that the back was on backwards.

Eames upholstered shell chair restore

I have had these two yellow Eames fiberglass chairs by Herman Miller in my garage for over two years, it was time to do something with them. I did a lot of research about removing the foam and glue that was under the naugahyde. It seamed like there was a lot of mixed results when people attempted this, some said it was easy and others were reduced to using grinders and sanders to remove the old foam and glue from the fiberglass shell. I figured it was my turn to give it a try. click “READ MORE” to find out how I did.
