this was a project that was so fun! a gal came into the shop a bit ago and was looking for a dining table...i showed her what i had, but she was looking for more of a rustic, wheathered, reclaimed wood top....i told her that i could build it for her and do a custom...she LOVED that idea! so we started off with a few designs and found one she really liked and figured out color and size. she also had a set of 6 chairs that she wanted to use with it, so i painted those the same color as the table base and found some cool fabric for the seats.
if you've seen some of my other posts, about the 1870 victorian...you know that when we were gutting it, we found some really amazing old tongue and groove planks on the exterior walls...fir. gorgeous! we used those planks for her table top and it looked absolutely amazing!!
