DO tell me where this AMAZING table came from!
Becky Harris added this to A 1920s Grill Inspires a Patinated Patio
An iron balcony railing from a local salvage yard became the base for an outdoor serving table. "I love to find an architectural feature and use it another way," Cohan says. "Using something like iron is a way to add patina to a project that might be brand new; it gives it some history and warmth you just cannot find in new materials." The tabletop is a custom-cut slab of bluestone. It now serves as a spot for a buffet or bar, and can also serve as a potting bench.Cohan had the artisans at Recycling the Past build it out, adding new legs to the railing to balance and support the heavy top. The table base, including the new legs, plus labor was $400. The custom-cut bluestone top was $200.
