Re-purposed Table Saw To Drink Station

Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (18)What do you do on a rainy day?  Today I was suppose to set up for Pickin’ on the Prairie Vintage Market but all I could do was put up my tent, pile everything under it and throw a tarp over the whole thing.  So, I’m home cleaning house, doing laundry and writing to all of you!  It’s actually kind of nice but I’m a little concerned about being ready for the show in the morning, it starts at 10am.  My husband and I will be there by 8 and we’re praying for sunshine!

Anyway, on to some fun stuff…

After we moved to Spokane just 5 short weeks ago, we started cleaning out my parents/brother’s barn.  Dave came across this old table with a broken circular saw attached.  Once we had the barn pretty well cleaned up, he started to work on his own project…converting this saw table into a “Drink Station”.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (2)Here’s what it looked like before he started tearing into it.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (5)This was no easy task, as he soon found out.  Wow, this thing was built to last a life time.  He worked on getting it taken apart for hours, but he stuck with it.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (14)He tried not to damage any parts that he wanted to remain on the piece for added interest.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (11)Unfortunately the front wheel broke off so he plugged the hole with a bolt.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (6)Finally, all the pieces were off and he could start to re-purpose into something useful once again.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (8)First, he cleaned it all up (I helped with this part).Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (9)Then he added a shelf for an ice bucket to keep drinks cold.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (19)The top is made out of barn wood we found stacked behind the barn.  He put down a piece of plywood first so he’d have something to screw it into.  It’s sold as a rock!  I love the casters.  It’s easy to roll around, even in the grass, and the casters lock into place.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (16)Our cousins from Canada were stopping by for an overnight visit so my mom asked me to help here with an outdoor brunch.  Of-course I was delighted to do so.Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (1)She also asked me to make a quick sign for the Drink Station.  And let me tell you, it was quick.  I was placing the last letters on the board as they were all driving into the driveway.  There was no time to measure for straight lines.  I even shortened the tomato juice to V8.  Haha!  My nephew Paxton, helped me set it up and hang the bunting for the final touch.  It was a hit, and so was all the delicious food my mom served.  Repurposed Drink Station For Family Outdoor Brunch ~ Vintage Street Designs (18)I was planning on taking this to Pickin’ on the Prairie this weekend but it didn’t fit on the trailer.  Nobody in our household was complaining.  We are happy to keep it around for awhile.

Hope you can join in the fun at Pickin’ on the Prairie Saturday – Sunday 10am – 4pm.  Would LOVE to see you if you’re in the area!!!

Blessings ~ Judy
