First off, I want to apologize for my absence yesterday... I had this post planned but J and I were BOTH deathly ill with food poisoning. I won't tell you where it was from in case it's your favorite restaurant, but needless to say I'll be cooking a lot of meals at home from now on. Now for the fun stuff...
My best friends are so creative, it's hard not to be inspired by them! You may remember my other bestie's Ikea hack a few months ago.
I fell in love with Stephanie's table the second I saw it and to hear it was a DIY... and incredibly affordable? Even more amazing.
Her first step was to purchase the barrel. She is a wine club member at Lincourt Vinyards in Solvang, CA, so it was only $40. If you're not a wine club member anywhere, call your local winery and ask!
She started out just using the wine barrel, which was already adorable, but decided to add a glass top to it as well for more functionality. She was able to have a friend of her dad's cut the glass for her for free, but before that she found a piece on Craigslist for $20!
The barstools were hand-me-downs, but you could easily find an affordable pair on Craigslist.
What do you guys think? Are you as smitten about it as I am?
If you want to see more of Stephanie and follow her adventures (she is blog-less), you can find her on Instagram here!
