    I really like that, nice proportions. Have you left the metal bare or given it a coat of something to protect it?

    Cheers! It's had couple of coats of Briwax so it should stand up to general moisture / humidity

    Ha it wasn't too bad as it's all just 20mm box, about £120 plus £75 for the pine

    looks good left unpainted. In the house that should be fine, and not to difficult to sort if you did get a littler bit of surface rust.

    I would never have thought of using steel, not liking the 'industrial indoors' look, but that really does look good, well done Barry :thumbup:
