well hello Mr. Industrial.....

 Brickmaker tables seem to be all the rage right now in design....

I love the look, but not the BIG price tags that tend to accompany these industrial beauties.....

When I found the Ballard Designs version I thought I would go for it and place
my order - at around 350 bucks, the price was about 1/3 the cost of it's
more substantial versions {hello Restoration Hardware!}....

Well, seems lots of other design savy peeps wanted Mr. Industrial too....
'cause it was backordered for like THREE MONTHS.....

Not usually a patient girl, I decided I had no choice but to wait....
plus we were in the middle of moving and I had a few other
things to keep my mind occupied!

Well, Mr. Industrial arrived today.....
I am usually skeptical about furniture that comes
"Assembly Required" but this piece went together quickly and quite
sturdily {I am bringing out my very best vocabulary tonight girls!}...

And cause I have a fancy new camera and wanted to show all of you his luscious industrial goodness, I snapped these photos about 12 seconds after I assembled him....

I have fallen in love with blue porcelain once again in this house.....
proving to my husband that YES we should keep all these pieces of crap beautiful collectibles
in storage 'cause a woman is known entitled to change her mind!

I will say that the Ballard Designs version is not as big as other more costly tables but
actually fits my space better than the others would have.  I also
love that it has a lower shelf to store magazines or books.  The pricier
versions do not have lower shelves.

I am thrilled with Mr. Industrial!

** I am headed to San Diego this weekend for another soccer tournament.....
but hoping to see some sites beyond the soccer fields.  Any California
girls have recommendations for me?  Good shopping, eating, beaches?

  6. i sure do love that table. it it like welded steel with salvage-y wood? is it raw or painted too?

  7. The table is fabulous! The wood and steel is a great combination!!
    I am jealous for sure

  8. Hey Jill, love the family room! Things at your house are looking really good.

  9. the table is fab-u-lous jill! the casa is coming along nicely!


  10. This table looks gorgeous , the blue and white planter makes a delicate contrast against the industrial timber and steel , lovely on the eye ! Love your blog , now following xx Ava

  11. I apologize if you have already addressed this question, but what is the color of your living room? The whole room is very lovely and that paint color is the perfect backdrop.

  12. Went back into your older posts and saw that the color was BM Halo so all set. Again, your home is beautiful!

  13. I've been eying a similar table at http://shop.retro.net/ but will have to check out Ballard!

  14. Hey Jill,
    I love your new home. It is very inspiring. I was from San Diego til hubby moved us to Minneapolis. Anyway, I highly recommend visiting Coronado. It has classic bungalows and the Hotel Del Coronado. Got married there. Enjoy your trip.

  15. looks great jill. your house is so different from your style before. a little more modern...less feminine or shabby or something. love it. so fun to put a house together. have fun in san diego.

  16. I love it! It's just right for your house. I also love the lower shelf although mine would likely always have cats on it! P.S. What kind of camera did you get?

  17. Love your new table. I hate waiting too. Just got some leather pcs and they took FOREVER. I did however fall in love with the restoration hardware cart coffee table and just before I was about to order it I found one at an old lumberyard sale for $25.00. YEP.. thats right... Little power wash from the hubs and she is now my favorite pc in the house...

  18. The table looks perfect in there! Beautiful living room...and I love the lamps sitting on the dresser in the background..they are gorgeous!

  19. Hi Jill! I know this is an old post, but I saw a photo of two leather chairs on pinterest which linked to your blog homepage and I really wanted to ask about them. I will saw it took me a while to find the post but here I am! :)
    Could you tell me the brand of the chairs? I love them!

    I've really enjoyed reading your blog posts and now you have a new follower! :)

  20. Yes please tell us where you got your chairs?


I always love to hear your thoughts! Please share!
