George W vs Bald M

The prez and I have been going some rounds lately. I used to tell Julie that there's no way I'm gonna make it through two terms of George W Bush without him doing me actual physical harm, and most likely death. Well, I never got drafted but I did lose my job due to a struggling economy back in August, and once I found the best job I'd ever had, the economy hit them too, and Baldy has found himself jobless once more. I REALLY liked that job, George. Really. And I just had a baby. And it's the holidays, George. You've won you a couple rounds. Luckily today is 12/21, and if I can hold out for just one more month without being killed, hopefully Mr. Obama will help me out in one way or another... preferably by buying something off my etsy site. Honestly, my table got it this little round of buzz here at Industrial Design Served, here on Kelly Vanhook's site, and on an Etsy Treasury site (which has expired)... assuming it all has to do with Etsy choosing it as part of their Modern Design Gift Guide. I'm down with free advertising. And now I have nothing to do with the time on my hands, except make a table for you, a lamp for you, a wooden skirt for you over there, and anything your heart desires, Mr. President Elect. Anyone who wants to hire a baldman with a couple tools in his garage is welcome to contact this one.

DIY Eames Desk Side Table

So just before all this big baby hubbub hit, I thought we'd need to have a little side table for the rocking chair in the nursery, and had to come up with one stat.

Several months ago, I went to an estate sale and picked up a bunch of these desktops that were originally attached to Eames chairs that ended up going overseas. The overseas buyer didn't wanna pay the extra shipping to get the desks too, so this guy is ready to unload em on the first baldman he sees.

I hit my fave Breed and Co to get some dowel rods, and used some old wrought iron hairpin legs I had in the garage, and whipped up this double decker Eames desktop side table in a couple hours. It seems to be doing the trick, as it's now covered in burp cloths, blankets, water glasses, breast pumps, boppies and an assortment of other items that were never in our house pre November 24th. Anyway, if I get some more hairpin legs, I might attempt to sell this table on Etsy?

Baldd is Hott

Not to toot a baldhorn, but if you are looking for one of the "Hottest Designers on Etsy" in the realm of Modern Design, you've come to the right place. The Etsy Gift Guide picked this little gem of a table to tack on to the list. Now if someone would actually listen to said guide, we'd be honkin instead of tootin.
