From Irrigation Junk to New Office Table

My friend Tara owns a greenhouse. This is a bit of an understatement.

She owns a GREENHOUSE.

Tara and her family own Guthrie Greenhouses aka Red Dirt Plants in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Guthrie Greenhouses has been in business since 1892!

I’ve had the privileged of working with Tara over the past few months and have slowing began sharing her new home with you.

Over the years, the greenhouse has accumulated more than a few rusty odds and ends. Tara asked one of her handy (and quite talented) employees to take whatever he could find in the back of the greenhouse and fashion a rustic table for her home office.

This scrappy old door, complete with peeling paint and missing panes, became the table top.

The base was made from rusty old pipes, spigots, fittings and other things I can’t name.

When finished and moved into place, Tara topped the old door with glass cut to size.

So cool! Who wouldn’t want to work and create on this desk? In fact, on the day I took this last pic Tara’s desk was covered with her latest project. Hence, the corner photo. 🙂

New office curtains are in the works. I’ll be sharing those and more of Tara’s gorgeous home soon. See more of Tara’s home here:  Kitchen, Laundry Room Curtains, Master Closet, Master Closet Curtains & Jewelry Display and Ceiling Treatments.

    I adore this! Your friend is so talented! I’ve seen pipe tables before….but never with the faucets attached!

    Happy day to you sweet friend!

    What a great idea! My husband used to make wonderful desks for us with two file cabinets and a wooden door across the top. It gave us a much bigger workspace that I loved. Isn’t it fun to think “outside the box.” 🙂
