We picked up an old cable reel that the theatre was throwing out and thought it would make a nice table and I had an idea that I could wrap some of the rope we pick up on the beach around it. Then mad friend showed me a website, someone had got there before me but I liked it so much I had to share it. Barnickle Furniture seems to be a one girl affair, set up by Lucy Schmidt. After training and working in stage design she decided to use her theatre design skills and transfer them to painting furniture and she just so happens to paint cable reels!!
and for foodies
There are other designs on the website plus other pieces of furniture so take a look.
