I live in Vancouver, Canada and I love to make things with paper + fabric.
Interests: other than the obvious craft related hobbies, taking pictures + traveling are the two things that make me the happiest.

@Mac East - not sure what to tell you. That's what we paid. We get lots of emails from people who have made our table and they are able to find the materials for around the same price too. Maybe you just need to shop around your area more. Good luck!

Having a baby is like a non-stop roller coaster that keeps changing course! And nothing seems to get babies off their game like teething. Am I right?! That's where Glitter & Spice teething necklaces come in! Everette's third tooth was... Continue reading

@D I don't know why but there was no residue or oil on these pipes. Not sure if this is some kind of special pipe because we just went with the ones that had the look we like. No "pipe dope" necessary because all the pipes have threads and screw into each other.

@Ashley, these pipes are clean as a whistle! There isn't any greasy residue on them at all. They came clean and dry with a matte finish. Hope this helps!

I got all the pipes from a local plumbing store called Hillcrest Plumbing.

The total cost of all the materials was around $150.

If you look at the bottom of the table, you'll see those circular pieces. We used those same pieces right under the wood and there are holes in those flat roundy parts. We then used flat (1x12inch) brackets to secure the pieces together (x8) :)

Ugh. Honestly, greys are the thorn in my side! It takes me forever to find the right grey and when I think I've found the one, it never seem to be right in a different space. I'll let you know what I used, but you'll need to try them in your room to see if it works. They are both from Dulux: Veil Silver Quil Hope that helps!

The top is just from Home Depot and was originally one long 16 foot piece. They cut it down to 3 5-foot long pieces. I simply stained it with some stain I had laying around.

I came across a great table while perusing Pinterest last week. It had a wood top and the base was made out of plumbing pipes. I fell in love as soon as I saw it. I've been looking for a... Continue reading

Its definitely a labor of love but I once you get in the groove of things it goes faster. It would be very time consuming if you only wanted to make 1 design each time.

YES Kumi! I'll give you my order closer to the time but I definitely want a few more colors! You're the best.

The machine itself is very durable and I haven't had any problems with my plates like other users have. But I did come across this post by Box Car Press that recommends getting rid of the plates that come with it and purchasing custom photopolymer plates. I think this makes a huge difference in the quality of the imprint. Good luck! http://boxcarpress.com/us/blog/2009/11/24/l-letterpress-printing-techniques-from-boxcar-press/
