I recently redesigned one of my personal Web sites - an art portfolio - using an Airtable base on the backend. If you’re interested, you can check it out here: http://art.timdietrich.me
The site is PHP-based. It pulls all of the artwork (including the information about each piece and the images themselves) from the Airtable base via the Airtable API. It also uses Stripe to handle credit card payments, and saves the orders back to the Airtable base. And for email notifications and receipts, it uses Mandrill.

Thanks for checking it out - and let me know if you have any questions about it.
I’ve found Airtable to be a nice alternative as a backend to basic Web sites. I’m using it as a CMS for a few Web sites now, both for my own use and for a few clients.
Airtable’s ease-of-use, flexibilty, low cost, and powerful API make it ideal as a backend for basic sites. I’ve also found that Airtable makes it very easy to publish images, documents, and so on.
If you have any questions about how I’m using Airtable, please let me know. I would be happy to share my thoughts and experiences - and I’d love to hear how you are using it, too.
