DL’s Back!


(Kirby here:  DL is spending a lot of time right now filling orders for pub and coffee tables, but it’s boring to make the same stuff over and over again.  So I encouraged him to just whip up a few little things for fun and a quick buck. This is one of those pieces.)


DL: I picked up these doors a while ago in central Pennsylvania.  The legs were found in the basement at an estate sale.  I like finding this stuff and getting it at a good price. (Kirby: Yeah.  Like buying the furniture pieces that are still laying all over the place.  But they were CHEAP!)


I attached the four legs to one of the doors.  (Kirby:  I had a vision of using these doors as the outer panels on a funky headboard for the master bedroom and then realized, who am I kidding?  I doubt I will ever get everything on my list done…I have prioritized and the master headboard is scheduled for sometime around fall of 2024.)

DL:  I wasn’t sure if I should change the stain and paint on the little table, but Kirby said to try to sell it the way it is (Kirby: It’s PATINA, people!), and if it doesn’t sell in the next few weeks, she’ll milk paint it.  (Kirby: I would milk paint DL if he stood still long enough...)

i agree about the patina- keep as is! :) it looks perfect, dl! great work!
i plan to have my playroom done about the same time as your headboard.... maybe in time for my grandkids?

Hello DL. It looks perfect. I love the old legs!

Well don't paint those legs because they are incredible just the way they are. I would paint the top, just because I don't like old wood finishes so much, but maybe that's just me. DL what do you use to attach the legs?
