After a good deal of brainstorming and changing designs we thought we finally had the perfect dining table. As our imagination went wild, a prototype was made.
This prototype is ‘floating’ and unique because of the added greenery. It would have been a perfect place for basil, rosemary et cetera.
So the first design wasn’t going to work out. But there was a spontaneous solution.
Yes, a ladder. A unique painting ladder made from dark wood with paint splashes on it, bought it for 30 euros. Its length can reach out up to 10 meters and consists of 3 pieces. We wanted to make a bar kind of dining table. So, that means with bar crutches and slightly higher than a normal dining table.
Step 1,2 and 3: Clean scaffold wood, Sandpaper it, Custom it and attach with a wooden plank
Step 4: Disassemble ladder
Step 7: Put some clear coat on it and treat the scaffold wood several times
The table is fully finished, but I just gave you a sneak peek of the DIY. The crutches! These aren’t fully finished yet, they need some color (;. But that’s until the next vacation or long weekend. Enjoy!
See how smooth the surface is? The wood has been treated 3 times.
Oh and we used the second part of the ladder as a book shelf!
I love that the ladder element can be traced back on the wall.
Easy, drill a hole in the wall and attach! This ladder already had a piece of steel sticking out as a part of the folding system.
P.S. We didn’t do anything with the ladder. We just left it in its natural state!
P.P.S The decorating and styling part is not finished at all
P.P.P.S. We don’t have a lamp cover yet.
