Copper tubing side table

Hey! I’m doing a series of summer DIYs over at design*sponge and the first one came out today. It’s the first time I’ve done some serious home projects (serious for me anyway). I have a serious fixation on copper plumbing tubing right now so I incorporate it into a few projects. First one up is this side table for my new studio. Guess who learned to use a drill for it? Yup! It gave me an “I can do anything in this world” now attitude. Build a house? no biggie, coming right up. No, in all seriousness, learning to use a drill has changed my life. I need to give a big shout out to my downstairs neighbor, Sebastian, who so patiently walked me through these projects and directed me on how to make it feasible. PLUS, he has every single tool you could possible need/want (including one to bend metal! oh yeah, good times ahead) so thank you! Also, thank you for letting Hilda and I come crash your dinner to get some good shots of the table in your beautiful house. And once again, a gold medal to Hilda for your amazing patience, ideas, and support as I tried doing 5 DIYs in one day especially in the midst of moving :(. And one last shout out to my friend Anna who came to the rescue with engineering advice. I wish she could perch on my shoulder and direct me on a daily basis.
