Apartment Therapy

As you know I live in a VERY small space in the city. So the things I surround myself with have to be dual purpose and very functional. While my parents were here in September working on the bed, they came up with an idea for a table. We brainstormed and I shared that I had seen a piece of art in Macy's that I was quite fond of and we could incorporate it into the table. My rents went home and my stepdad "hummed" out his idea and built a table that is both functional and fabulous. By day it hangs on the wall as an art piece. By night, or whenever I need a place to eat, work or hopefully soon entertain guests (albeit a very small number of guests) it is a fully functional table. For big city, small apartment dwellers like myself this is a dream come true. Thanks Rents

I love it!! when the table is down, the chalkboard is only showing? Great idea. I see dinner menu all over it.


Gar you are soooo under-rated. I am naming my next chicken after you!!!
