So, there’s a bit of a design dilemma in our home. I have a love for all things vintage and a bit retro, and that includes industrial-chic, too. My boyfriend, well, let’s just say we would own the most sleek and modern furnishings available if he had his way. We’re talking Star Trek-style modern. See the problem here? It’s virtually impossible to marry both of our styles, so we usually agree on something contemporary or retro/modern-inspired, shake hands and move on. But I stumbled across this reclaimed wood coffee table and I just couldn’t let it pass me by. (Especially if I can make it myself.) Dan Faires, Design Star season five fan favorite and host of DanMade, created this rustic, industrial project that’s surprisingly easy to make and incredibly charming all the way around. And I’m pretty positive boyfriend won’t object to this living room centerpiece, especially if he knows it was handcrafted by moi.

  5. Leaf ratings. You might see that some traditional balsamic vinegars have leaves on their labels. This is a rating system that ranks quality on a one to four leaf scale, with four leaves being the best. You can use the leaf ranking as a guide for how to use the vinegar. For instance, one leaf balsamic vinegar would be appropriate for salad dressing, while four leaf vinegar would be best used a few drops at a time to season a dish right before serving. The Assaggiatori Italiani Balsamico (Italian Balsamic Tasters Association) established this grading system, but not all producers use it.
