I want a new kitchen table. What I really want is my husband to build me a table. He has been actively ignoring this conversation for over a year. I was even starting to figure out how to build it myself (or, find a
family member brother to help me).
Imagine HOW EXCITED WE BOTH WERE when my cousin asked if I'd want that table that Grandpa had built. Let me repeat that: That Grandpa had built. Probably, like, 25 years ago. We all have things Grandpa built for us, I have a lovely glass book case, and of course my baby doll furniture that will be dug out of my parent's attic
if when I have a granddaughter. I bribed my In-laws with dinner in exchange for them bringing it over for me. Well worth it.
Farmhouse table, with two benches. I may just use one bench and look for some wooden chairs,
but this is very close to what I've been looking for.
Sure, after a little while in a storage unit it needs a little work, but that's ok.
I'm thinking I'm going to strip the top & refinish it, but paint the legs black. Kind of distressed.

Yes? Yes. I'm excited. Now if the weather would dry out enough to get out & work on it!
