Coffee (Table) Required

Industrial style coffee tables make sense for a busy, family home. Steel and weathered wood looks better with age.

I don’t want to spend my time worrying about whether or not my kids use the coffee table as a car race track. I would rather spend my time enjoying the fact that they are playing (hopefully together).

We decided to tackle our first project outside of a home project together! I am excited that after the first 100th time mentioning that “we” should build a coffee table. We did it. I must give Andrew all of the credit for the actual construction of the table. But I am the designer and project supervisor (clearly)!  We are excited for the final product to be finished and have ideas on future adaptations to the table.
