Built a coffee table for the drawing room. It's made from perfectly-sized leftover IKEA Hammarp oak worktop (from our new kitchen), and steel hairpin legs from Invicta Ironworks. I love it.

I wanted offset shelves in this drawing room alcove. Realised our old IKEA Flarke shelves could do the job but was surprised how well. Next jobs - raise them off the ground and colour/paper the back panels.
