Well we finally finished the farm table and it looks great! I wanted to show you a picture of it in our dining room but I couldn’t wait to share this. We’ve never built anything like this before but we did it anyway.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right – Henry Ford
We designed it together and Scott did all the manual labor of assembling it (that wood is heavy) and then I sealed all the wood ( I usually get the easy jobs). I love that no matter how much abuse it gets it won’t affect the beauty of the wood, instead it will just add to the memories and stories we get to tell about it.
We’re gonna need a few strong guys to help carry this beauty into the house. It’s super heavy.
I also found 4 side chairs at a second-hand store and set about re-finishing them, we had to cut about 1 1/2″ off each leg so they would be the same height as the bench and they really needed an update.
We can’t wait to have our first family meal around this table and I’m sure you’ll be seeing more photos of it in the future. For now, we get to take some pride in a hand crafted item and love that we are able to create a few of the things we want or need. What do ya think? Would you have this in your dining room?
