For our Wednesday Walkabout as we made our was back to South Dakota last year we revisited some old favorite places, many of them coffee shops. I find coffee shops fascinating with their artsy feel and soft jazz, and … well coffee. River Rock Roasting Company in Laverkin, Utah was a frequent haunt of ours during the years we wintered in Southwestern Utah. On our last visit, we made note of the new furnishings, table tops done in eclectic designs.
Here a square table top decorated with pennies. The pennies are glued to the surface and then resin is poured to cover. There’s, obviously a lot more to the process but you can look that up if you’re interested. I just loved the local “epoxy artist” work. It give such dimension and depth to the table.
Here is a maze replica. I apologize for the blurry shot but as you can tell, the lighting was intensely bright. In the upper right corner you can see a bit of the next table which was done in keys.
My personal favorite was this smokin’ hot number, which we ultimately decided to sit at. The table top itself is a piece of old plywood that has been reclaimed and refurbished, topped with chili peppers and epoxy resin.
And finally, because after all it is a coffee shop. A tiny section of the “coffee” table. Those are coffee beans. Again, the shot itself is lacking but this table was badly scratched and marred and this section was the best I could salvage.
This post brought to you by Marsha’s PPAC #54 do go take a look at some of the Fascinating/Gorgeous offerings this week! And inspired by my deep-seated, nearly pathological need for COFFEE. Yeah, I’m really tired of being tired. ;-p
Til next time ~May your coffee be strong ~JP
