I wanted to make my husband Richard, 47, a really personal, present. He’d made a wooden table ages before, and I decided to perk it up. So I took blue sherry bottles, put them in a pillowcase, then smashed them to bits. Then I grouted the shards on to the top of the table in a decorative pattern. Richard loved it, and now we use it as a nice wine table for our patio.
