Handmade Dining Table

Here’s the story about how my two favorite guys hand made every.single.thing about this table.ImageWhen we found out that we were going to be moving in a week to a new, empty apartment we realized we needed to get serious about some furniture FAST. And that’s easier said than done when you’re an extremely picky design conscious commitment-phobe cheapskate. Cue A Beautiful Mess to the rescue. saw how simple it was to make your own dining table from thanks to their DIY Honeycomb Table and thankfully Steve jumped on board to make one for us! He spent the week before we moved in cutting, sanding, and staining our hexagon table top per the ABM instructions and it turned out amazinggggg. Since we didn’t have legs for it yet, it served as a our coffee table on top of some Ikea boxes for the first month we lived here.ImageImageWe considered buying some hairpin legs for the base, but decided to hold out and survive without a dining until my dad could make us some. You see, my dad is a blacksmith artist in SC and his best friend is a glass blower. They came together to make the most beautiful legs for the hexagon table top! I am SO SO SO SO happy we waited until I could get back to SC to pick them up. The glass leaves twinkle in the sunshine and tie our Target chairs in perfectly. I am in loveeeee with this table and have been caught staring at it from time to time. Our little apartment is really coming together!! Just gotta start hanging some things on the walls now…

  1. Gorgeous! I love a piece of furniture with a story. I don’t have anything custom made, but the dining table I have, I wanted for years. Most people just accept any free or cheap dining table for their first time away from home, but not me. When I was 21, I found my table for $60 and it sat in our “dining room” for a year before I could afford the chairs I wanted. I’m 30 now and still have the bargain table and chairs.

  2. Holy Cow! I love this table!! I’m a firm believer in waiting and making it happen just the way you want! This is awesome!!
