Transformed :: Sawhorse Table

Inspiration for a DIY sawhorse dinner table | Claire Zinnecker for Camille Styles

Happy Thursday everyone, Claire here with my latest project dilemma. One of the many influences my job as an interior designer has had on my personal life is my constant desire to change and rearrange my own humble abode. I spend so much time creating spaces for others that it’s not unusual to find me pushing around the furniture in my own home until I am satisfied with the new arrangement… which is exactly what this past Sunday looked like. And all my rearranging left me with the desire to change my formal dining room into a more flexible dining/workspace for myself and my roomie Chanel. As I began looking into the type of table I should make, research revealed so many options that indecisiveness quickly set in! I’d love to hear from all of you: Which of these tables would you like to see me make into a work table/dining table? Pitch in your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal in two weeks!

    Totally the first one, because it’s collapsible and you can pack it up and fold it down when not in use.

    And because I’ve thought about purchasing that particular one myself – may have even had it in the cart before getting button shy.

    It so happens that I am right now in a similar project. I have an old boring cheap home-office and I want to transform it to a dining table/work area with sawhorse trestles. I am more for No1 (I like bold colors) but I am not yet sure for the exact color combination. Red (also yellow) is so used nowadays. Perhaps stimulating violet?
