Flattery Will Get You A Dreamy Table!

They say the most sincere form of flattery is imitation, but for most, it's just the want of not having to pay a high price for what you want! Why buy it at a trendy $$$$tore if you have the ability to make it yourself for less? Case in point:

This a a fabulous table! It's got a lot going for it: a contemporary industrial base, paired with an equally modern edgy round top. It also commands a lot from your wallet, priced at 599.00!

But with a little imagination (provided by consignor Pam Lawrence) 


the right resources, (a table base picked up at a local Berkeley, CA salvage center)


some good old-fashioned ingenuity ( a salvaged coffee table top with a rivet detail around the sides was attached with a metal pole and threaded pipe connector). 


and some Cece Caldwell's Paint (The wood on top had some issues so, it was painted with Vermont Slate!), you may just get what you've been dreaming of!
