And the Winner Is...and A New Cork Table

And the winner of the giveaway is...

The 3rd comment which was Needled Mom.  I will send out the package ASAP.  I hope you find use for the lace and pin cushion.

I have a tendency to cut out articles I like and keep them in a binder.  A long time ago, I had seen a tabletop covered with wine corks.  At the time, although I did not have a table top I could use this technique on, I kept the article.  Through the years I have been collecting corks with the hopes of someday using them on a project similar to the one in the article.  I thought it might work on a door, cork board, etc..  Recently, we removed a couch from my family room and had to do a re-do.  When all was said and done, I needed a small side table.  So with my corks in hand, I thought I could make a side table.  I had an old, damaged globe stand that was in my basement for about a year.  Why did I keep it?  I honestly don't know, but I am glad I did.  Because here is what my side table looks like now...

I have to say that I used a lot more corks than I thought I would.  But I do love the way it looks and it is functional (after adding a glass top).  Isn't it neat?


  1. Kudos to you... I love the table! Ok Chuck and I will sacrifice, all for you... we will keep on drinking so you can have a complete set, another end table, cocktail table, sofa table... etc etc LOL!

    I love your cork table. I save wine corks and build birdhouses with them, but maybe I should give a table a try. Love it!!!
