How To Make a Threaded Rod Table

How To Make a Threaded Rod Table

Photos by Mateo Londono

A few years ago, I bought a really heavy and large butcher block table that had lived the first part of its life as a cutting board in a Miami restaurant. I cleaned it as soon as I brought it home. Then I re-finished the table to bring out all the one-of-a-kind character it had accrued from years of abuse at the hands of kitchen knives. That table has since moved on to its next home, but I hadn’t forgotten about the unique threaded metal accents and butcher block look. Recently when I needed a narrow table that was sturdy and cool, I knew I had to take a chance at recreating the look. A few days later, my threaded rod table was complete and it fit my space perfectly. Keep reading to see how I made this industrial butcher block table using stainless steel threaded rods

Here at Krrb we’re constantly immersed in the latest design trends and we’re not mad about that! Often times there are some trends we come across that we can’t seem to agree upon. Today Chrissy and Mateo check out what creative people are doing in terms of exposed storage and decide if they love it, or want to leave it.

At some point closets and dressers start overflowing and you are left with items strewn across the bedroom. I repurposed a ladder bookshelf as storage for my bulky sweaters and at first it looked nice, but soon turned into a disaster. The folded sweaters began to look as if they had a life of their own, spilling off of my shelves and taking over the room. Today we look at a few different ways that people are utilizing exposed storage and decide if we’re fans or not

Even way back when, students still hung up posters and photos of their friends and family. Check out our favorite furnished rooms from every era in the last 110 years
