After upgrading our couch to a deep sectional, we were in serious need of a console table to run behind it. Unfortunately for the charm of Hoboken but luckily for us, certain people are purchasing brownstones nearby and gutting them of original beams. I happened to stumble across one of these renovations and came out of the conversation a few heart pine beams richer. After hours of brushing and sanding, the character of the wood came to surface and was quickly turned into the top surface of this wrap-around console table. Another beam was sanded down for the standing posts and 10-inch nails hold the table together. About $80 (including the power sander) for an amazing table made of 150 year-old beams. One mans trash certainly is another man’s treasure.
