Repurposed Rustic/Industrial Table

If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I’ve been working in the media room in my basement.
One of my favorite additions is this cool rustic/industrial table.
I’m letting you have a little peekaboo at some of the other changes.

I’ve been creating a rustic vibe in the media room with a little bit of industrial thrown in so this table fits the bill perfectly!

I just love these metal orbs that I found at Target.  Pookie was amazed at how fast they jumped into my cart.

I used a glass container that I already had on hand to create a cloche and gave it a rope handle.

It’s easy to see how I did it if you take a closer look.
My “handle” is purely for looks only though.

Take a look at the chipped blue paint and old print on the tabletop.  Love!

This table is made from a vintage spool that was found in an old mill in the foothills of North Carolina.

The spools from this plant are dismantled and rebuilt using the original parts, while preserving the original colors and printing that shows dates and locales.
Oops – another peek!

I bought this table from Jeremy and Sharon, who are the owners of Sample Studio/High Point Liquidators.  Some of you will remember the two group shopping trips that we went on to his warehouse in High Point, NC where they sell Furniture Market samples.

They have several styles that are available for purchase ranging from $50 – $300 (not including the glass).

Check out some of the ones that they currently have on hand.

Coffee tables

Dining and pub tables

And just ask me what I’d give to have one of these antique carts!

    Funny, we had a spool for our first dining table back in the early 70s cause we couldn’t afford a real table and it was free! It was huge and had formerly held electrical or phone cables. I guess we were country before country was cool 🙂

    It looks great Suzy! I love seeing the old spools transformed into functional furniture.
