Yardstick Table

Come enter the Thirty-One Giveaway I have going on HERE!!!!!

If you've been reading my blog for awhile then you know I'm pretty much obsessed with yardsticks and have been collecting and hoarding them for over a year to start using them on projects.

My first yardstick project was this stool


The second is what I'm sharing with you today. 

We got this cute little white table from a friend.  



Cute, simple, great condition, and I didn't need to paint it - bonus!!

Here it is all fancied up with some yardsticks!

(Did you notice how chippy my doors are getting!! YAY!!)


I think this was the perfect table for a yardstick top. 



I like it slightly distressed too!






Are you a yardstick hoarder too? This table depleted most of my stash so I'm on the hunt again!

If you'd like to see sneak peeks throughout the week and other inspiration, be sure to follow me on Facebook!!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:

  5. I only have one vintage yardstick. It's from a lumber yard that my grandfather worked at. Both those tables have become super interesting now that you have redone them!

  49. What a great project. Do you have any tips on how you put it together? What did you use to attach the yardsticks? Did you use a router on the edges?
    Thanks for sharing.
