If y'all will remember last week's post, I'm still obsessed with this table. I've thought about it off and on all week. What I'd need to make one similar, if I even could make one similar (because I'm not going to lie and pretend that I know anything about woodwork). I was out thrifting with Andrea yesterday and we ran across this table.
I fell in love immediately. It was perfect. No it's not refurbished barn wood, but I loved it anyway. And the chairs! I wouldn't even need to recover them. I ended up leaving without the table because I wanted to think about it and talk to my husband to see what he thought. He didn't care, so I made plans to be at the thrift store as soon as they opened today. I thought about the table all night. What if it's already sold? What if someone is looking at it when I get there? After a restless night's sleep, I stood outside their door waiting for them to open at 10AM. I peeked in the window and there was my table! Without a sold sign! I quickly purchased it (after talking the store manager into knocking $20 off the price!) and then realized... I own a Beetle. How am I supposed to get this thing home? Well, you'd be surprised how much you can fit in the hatchback of a Beetle if you're creative. ;)
It's home now and I love it. It could use a fresh coat of white paint, but I think I can handle that. I can't wait to have dinner at it tonight!
