After years and years in the elements, materials tend to weaken and get destroyed. And one of the absolute best examples of this are the fences that often wrap around and protect our property.
But no matter how well we preserve these fences, weather and wear and tear will eventually take their toll. And when they do, the fence either has to be replaced or repaired. But if it indeed does need to be replaced, what do you do with the old fence?
Well, if you’re most people, you would simply throw out the destroyed fence. However, like is true with a lot of different old and unusable things, more can be done with unusable fence than you would think.
And when this talented woodworkers sisters boyfriend made a mess out of their fence, she knew exactly what she had to do. While most would have simply gotten rid of the destroyed and broken fence and simply start over, she had a better idea.
It all began when the sister’s boyfriend drove his car into his fence, completely destroying it in the process. It was obvious that the fence would need to be replaced. However, the old and now useless pieces of wood remained stashed in his family’s garage for years.
But after sitting there for years, the DIY woodworker got an idea. She believed the pieces of wood were a missed opportunity. The wood was still usable in some portions and she decided to create a coffee table out of it.
She began by creating a solid frame and then assembled some legs, all out of the damaged wood from the fence. Next, the wood was sanded down and put into the frame. Then the goal was to transform and finish the table so it looked less like an old fence, and more like a rustic and gorgeous coffee table. This was accomplished by staining the wood, bringing out a great color.
With a bit more stain, the table looks absolutely fantastic. The table is a great conversation piece with an amazing backstory behind it. It now resides in the living room and you would never guess this amazing wood table used to stand vertically as a fence.
