He built me a farm table!

An eight foot long, gorgeous, beautiful, wonderful one! Our living room turned workshop this morning (it was twelve degrees in his workshop) as he finished the table base and top and coated it with a few coats of linseed oil.
The wood he used for the frame is wood we had milled on site from our land up north, pine and ash, I believe. The top boards are Lowes. :)






While I absolutely love our white enamel topped table with cute three drawers that came from auction via an old bakery, we have long since outgrown it for meal times. It'll be sold on craigslist since I can't think of a home for it here. If you have kids, I highly recommend an enamel topped table. There was nothing I couldn't wash off of it: paint, playdough, food coloring...

Can it be cut down to make a kid sized table? The farm table is great!

Hannah said...

Thanks, Catherine Anne. We've been loving not being squished elbow to elbow at meals!

Wimberly, I am so thankful for my crafty, talented husband!

Holly Days, this table started as a b-day present a few years ago. But that was before we realized our back foundation was crumbling and we had carpenter ants eating our walls. So it languished in the workshop for a while. I think it was just waiting for us to outgrow the old one.

Thank you, Heather, for the blessing.

Julian, that's right!

Mrs. Sheila, I hope to surround it with friends soon, so maybe a photo then?

Marissa, he threatened my life when he heard I want to put the enamel table on craigslist. I think he's attached to it. Right now it is taking up a ginormous corner of our kitchen.

Emily, love your idea! We have done it with another farm style table with a drawer. Our kids use it daily.
