A folding trestle table is so handy to own. Once you do, you'll wonder how you ever coped without one. So, what exactly can you do with your trestle table? Here are a few ideas.
This table is usually placed in the living room near a sofa and it gives the room a nice, organized look. Some of the small items that people like to store on are TV and other home theater remote controls, magazines and even small sewing supplies or pens, etc. The functionality can be easily increased by adding a small cabinet just underneath it so that it can now easily store drink bottles as well. Pouring the drink and serving it has become just that much easier with such a table!
Another idea is to use tree stumps or other beautiful pieces of wood. The top surface can be sanded and polished to make a beautiful, natural surface. Alternatively, beautiful pieces of driftwood can have legs added to make a wonderful centrepiece coffee table for your room.
How many of us have ever thought about the principles of setting a table? For the uninitiated, how you prepare a table is about nothing more than putting silverware and utensils on a table before eating, and if you are lucky, sticking a napkin under each fork. We may ask, what is so difficult or interesting about that? Yet if we stop to think about it, whenever we go to a major event, it is the way that the tables have been set that creates the look and tone of the hall.
My medium of choice has long since been steel. Steel creations are permanent and the options in their design are limitless. After years of creating wall and free-standing sculptures I recently decided to focus my creative efforts on functional sculptures in the form of contemporary end tables.
One of the most common things to use in place of a coffee table is old packing cases from early last century. Often these were used to transport tea or other foodstuffs and many still have the original labelling upon them, faded by age. These can make a stylish and surprisingly convenient coffee table and can often be picked up fairly cheaply from antiques centres and fairs. Not only do they make good surfaces they also have a lot of storage space to hide away items that you do not want on display.
