one thing I love about all the wonderful people blogging out there is that there is no shortage of amazing inspiration and the generosity of the same people sharing the how-to’s for said inspirations. Once again I fell victim to a must create over at Anna White’s Site. This narrow farmhouse table here, sent me into the garage once again to recreate the table. I even had a place for it!! Under the windows in the office, a perfect place for the kids to do homework and e near Jon and I when we are working in the office.
We made the legs out of reclaimed pallet wood, the top we bought the top and side boards. I sanded the crap out of the top to make it look as much like a solid piece as possible.
I stained the top and put 3 clear coats over the stain.
I painted the legs white, then I distressed the paint with a hand sander.
I did a top coat of Trewax mahogany wood wax.
Markers, colored pencils, a small light, plain paper, lilacs and lillies out the window, bring your imagination to this table and put it on the paper kids:
I do have chairs for the table that are in teh process of being reinvented…I will add a post about them when they are home….but here are a few more shots of the table:
