Recycled fence slats


Since we are having such unseasonably warm weather I thought I'd share a little of the outdoors (although everything is pretty dead and dreary right now!). This coffee table is made out of fence slats that were going to be hauled away to the dump off a job site! The legs are pressure treated 4x4 posts…simple!! I found the old outdoor furniture and baker's rack at the swap meet. I added fence pickets to an old fireplace screen and have candles behind it to give that intimate feeling of a fireplace. I rescued the metal cart from a garbage pile. The bench in the background was found on the side of the road!

It’s about twenty degrees here with a foot of snow…not great tag sale weather.
