RH-Inspired Brickmaker’s Table

Dean and I have talked of making a larger coffee table for our living room for awhile now. So when we were chosen as one of twelve contestants (out of 299 entries!) for Creating With The Stars 2014 and were told that the first round was Knockoffs – we knew exactly what we were going to build!

RESTORATION HARDWARE BRICKMAKERS TABLE

For those of you that guessed this was our table – good job! And if you happened to vote for us – THANK YOU!

Our inspiration was Restoration Hardware’s Brickmaker’s Table. Gorgeous reclaimed wood top atop a rustic metal base. So much rustic industrial goodness in one table.

We don’t have a tutorial for you yet, but we can tell you that we totally cheated and made our table with wood legs painted to look like metal! Dean COULD have made the base metal, but given the time constraints and the fact that we wanted to be able to share a DIY that anyone could do, wood made much more sense.

Also because #cwts is a contest that requires anonymity, I spent all of last Saturday morning shopping for new things to stage the table with. Then I spent an hour Monday night returning things we decided not to keep. Good times. Some really cool coasters, a lantern and these perfectly aged-looking crown bookends stayed. (I knew the bookends were keepers when Dean said, “so, are you keeping those? They’re nice.”)

Now that the cat is out of the bag, we can also show you the table IN our living room. Surrounded by our things. You know, sort of where we built it for! (WARNING: PHOTO OVERLOAD)

So there you have it. Our version of the Restoration Hardware Brickmaker’s Table. We will try to have a tutorial for you soon…but now we have another project to do for Round 2!

*UPDATE: The tutorial can be found here.*

What do you think? Do you like the wood legs made to look like metal? What about the top and those great bolts in the sides?

I'd love it if you'd share:
