We moved our refrigerator to the other side of the room and thus had to do away with our kitchen table.
Once the wall was repaired where the refrigerator had been we needed a counter of some sort on which to set the espresso machine and all its components.
Simultaneously Charlie and I came up with the brilliant idea to cut down the tile-topped table to create a counter.
I carefully cut across the wood edges of the table and followed along a grout line. While cutting the table in half I hit something metal. When I flipped the table I noticed that screws were holding the top down. I removed them and continued to cut.
I used a hand saw to finish cutting the under table braces.
Just to make sure the measurement was correct I tried the table temporarily in its new place.
When Charlie finishes mudding the new drywall and I prime and paint it, we’ll secure the back part of the table to the wall with some kind of bracket.
Do you hack your furniture up to create something more momentarily useful?
