Julia found a coffee table she really liked in an online catalog. The description was ‘reclaimed pine’ and they were asking a gazillion dollars for it. After a careful look it turns out that the table itself was built of a secondary wood (i.e. poplar = cheap) and was then ‘skinned’ with reclaimed pine. The number of brad nail holes in this stuff was incredible….I guess I was to think they were wormholes? Anyway, I really felt I could do a better job and I think I did alright.
