I'm bringing some curbside love to you today folks. A good friend found something of interest on the side of the road one day and saved it for me. I wish I had taken a "before" picture. Just imagine the metal base of this piece in a layer of rust and uneven feet.
It must have been some sort of mechanical/machine base. It has a leftover hinge bracket and an electrical outlet panel underneath. Three of the four feet were shorter than the fourth. Luckily, they were all the same height and the wood I used on top matched the space perfectly. So I cut out custom feet for the three short corners.
I sanded down a good bit of the sides and flat surfaces to reintroduce some bare metal to go along with some remaining rust. I clearcoated the whole piece in the end so it wouldn't rust anymore and to bring out the deep colors of the distressed wood.
I charred the boards, like I've been doing a lot recently. It definitely brings out the grain and highlights any and all character the wood wants to offer. Sanding and roughing it up brings back some highlights.
Measurements: 23" tall; 23" wide; 26" deep.
