The Finished Product
For years I've been dreaming of a particular style of table. Back in the day, I thought I had found said table. The problem? It was around $1900. (And the chairs we're like $100 ea....) So of course, we decided that we'd rather eat than have a table to sit at so I back-burnered that idea.
Well, during a perusal of a thread on the Sonlight forums regarding decorating (why *I* was there we'll never know...) I ran across THIS.
Oh my goodness - it was THE table!!! How handy, we didn't have a table other than the one at the parsonage....so guess what I asked for from my hubby for my birthday and Christmas? :) I have a very creative and handy hubby so he altered where he needed to and created where he wanted to. :)
Here is the finished product and I am tickled pink at the results.
MY table has no nails or screws in it though because Alan wanted to try dovetailing. It's awesome. REALLY, REALLY awesome. He'll be building a bench and a few chairs as we need them. In all his free time of course....:)
So, as you can see, we have plenty of space for visitors. Come on over - we'd love to have you.
