CustomMade Curator: Yardstick Side Table

You might think yardsticks are only useful in helping to build furniture, but this side table turns that idea on its head. CustomMade artisan Larry Berger of Into the Woods Studio spent three years collecting vintage yardsticks before crafting this innovative piece, and we're glad he did! The emphasis on vertical and horizontal lines creates a lot of interesting patterns and movement. But our favorite part is the color, from the teal on the door to the pink and orange lines at the bottom to the strip of bright red.
