When we were selling our old house and building our new home, we decided that we wanted a new look for our dining room. We no longer wanted the traditional, formal dining room that we had at our previous house.
So craiglist it was, and this shiny beauty was sold before we moved!
Now the search for a new table began...
But it didn't take long
before I fell in love with this:
Me: "Um okay. You think so?????" (thinking that he is really handy, but this is going to be a large piece of furniture in my house and then what if he spends all this time and hard work doing it and then I DON'T LIKE IT - YIKES)
Husband: "No really, I can. It's easy. And it will be a lot cheaper"
And so that's how the dining room table adventure began...
Here are some pictures of what we started with:
We dug through this old reclaimed lumber, with hopes to find pieces that would work.
And yes we did!! Those dirty, splintered, VERY dense boards on that fork lift would soon have a new life. Once a part of an old building built in the 1890's in San Antonio, TX, they would soon be reborn into our family dining spot :)
