As they say, things always work out in the end.
Because when it comes to going DIY, nothing beats things always working out in the end just by using some wine barrels and a miter saw.
A few days ago, the coffee table that has been with my family for six generations has finally reached the end of its life. It’s totally fine for me to replace it with a new one, only it now has a sentimental value to me following the death of my beloved grandmother who has nothing to offer but pure love and that table for her daughter and her family, my mother and us – her family that consists of her amazingness, a wonderful husband, and great parents to three kids with me as the middle child.
So like any other grandchild who also has nothing to offer but pure love and respect for my grandmother from the moment I saw her for the first time when I was a child, I decided to take a closer look at it and fix it myself if possible.
The only problem at that time, I have no plywood or any other kind of hardwood for me to make a new set of legs for the said coffee table. But then, I remembered that I have two wine barrels stashed in the garage that just serves as a stand for my power tools and other things needed whenever I’m there to fix my car.
And so began my wine barrel adventure at home. As soon as I put it in place as new legs for our family’s prized heirloom, I reached out for my trusty miter saw and went to work – for me to make this generation’s coolest hybrid of both traditional and modern materials known to man.
I also made sure to use one of those found in reviews of miter saw stands – not just for me to make sure that every part of the soon-to-be innovated coffee table is exactly done the way I need it to be, but also for me to make sure that every part of the soon-to-be revolutionized coffee table is smoothly done the way I want it to be.
Because at the end of the day, I managed to innovate what seems to be impossible for most people: turning an old piece of furniture into a new kind of the same furniture.
