Bowling Alley Table

Photos by Kaity

Dining room table was made from a repurposed bowling alley lane. Beams were wrapped in scrap walnut flooring. Grandma's buffet was given new life with some fun orange paint. Chairs are mis-matched because that's what fits in the budget right now. :)

We made the table from an old/discarded bowling alley lane, covered in a zillion coats of resin (it likes to seep out thru the cracks). Metal was fabricated for the sides and plumbing pipes cut for the base. It was a much more complicated project than I had intended or planned on...but aren't they all sometimes. :)
