Monica from East Coast Creative says her entryway was in desperate need of a “stylish, but functional table.” Like a $1,099 table from Pottery Barn made from reclaimed wood and steel – except without the $1,099 price tag. Actually, it came with no price tag at all! Monica used wood she had leftover from other projects to build the table and then finished it off with spray paint and stain.

Meesh redirected her efforts and found a bookshelf she could repurpose with the addition of a few boards and chalk paint. Meesh says, “A little bead board, some industrial hooks, Michael’s crates, and voila! It’s perfect.”
