Ok we’ve got the walls covered and the inspiration for the table in sight. Next = designing the table legs.
Can you imagine the patience to hand turn 4 of these mammoth legs? He’s amazing, I know!
I really wanted to be able to fit 10 people well. 4 chairs on each side with spares for the ends when we need more spots. When we did the legs we also did a dimension design for the table top/apron/height and so on. The table top is 42″ across and 110″ long. This is definitely the biggest table in the house!
While the table was coming together we were also in search for the perfect chairs on Craigslist. I had previously turned my nose up @ these pressed back chairs but once we saw them painted, distressed and glazed (our new favorite finish) we knew they would be perfect for our dining room. Plus there was an abundance of the table/chair sets available on Craigslist and we needed a lot of chairs.
P.S. I’ll admit – Yes, I pulled the “farmhouse table for my Christmas present” card. Best Christmas gift EVER! Thanks Love!
It all starts coming together…
