The Talented Mr. Parsons
My husband has many talents, like making killer huevos rancheros, a near perfect Beaker imitation, the ability to figure out any math problem, and being super-duper handy. A couple of years ago, we purchased several beautifully aged planks of reclaimed wood from a local salvage yard with the intention of making a headboard like this one. But our busy schedules coupled with our amazing abilities to procrastinate to no end, made it so that we never got around to making anything at all. And by the time we were ready to dive into some wood working, we had outgrown the idea of that particular headboard altogether. Typical us. But since we loved our reclaimed wood, and couldn’t bear to let it go to waste, we found the perfect solution: a much needed coffee table. We borrowed the idea from our home studio, in which we built desks and work tables from solid wood doors and piping. Using the same method, Evan crafted up this simple coffee table design that we both completely love. It’s really special to have furniture in our house that we made with our own hands (I can say “we” because I helped…staining is no joke!). xoxo!
