A burst of orange against the moss green walls.
Just the way I like it, a distressed mess.
The large table top makes it funky and functional. It lifts off and is a great place to store tools.
Raw materials.
Masking off the area for the bin number.
Vintage stenciles were used to create the handpainted graphics.
Corner guards fabricated from steel angles and then given a rusty finish.
Casters allow the table to move effortlessly.

I envisioned a table for my breezeway that looked like it had been used and abused for the last 75 years. So inspired by a recent architectural project of converting an old commercial laundry into an industrial themed retail store I went with the idea of a laundry crate table.
