Is it weird that I already know what I want for Christmas? Because I totally do. In fact, I’ve already placed my order.
Yep, on top of everything else my hubby has to do, I’ve placed my order for a new dining room table.
I was a bit thrilled and really shocked that he didn’t totally dismiss the my idea the second it left my mouth.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
He could even build it like this if he wanted too!
Either way, I think they’re completely lovely. And because Anthony is a welder by trade, he’ll get to use his skills and build the frame and ends out of metal.
Just like our laundry room table, I’m planning on doing a thick wood top. The only thing that I have left to decide is the stain. I can’t decide if I should do a fruitwood stain (much like the first picture) or a white wash pickling, which looks like this:
I’m sure I’ll have to play around with it once we have the wood ready and the table built.
In the mean time, I’m enjoying these pictures… which only make me even more excited!
I am so excited about it. But I know what you’re thinking… What’s wrong with our current dining room table?
The answer is: Nothing! We bought it when the house was finished. I’ve always like it, but I’m super in love with the idea of having a hand built dining room table by my hubby. How cool is that?
Plus, the dining room is getting ready to have a whole bunch of changes. It still looks the same as before, but only because everything that I want to do takes planning and building by my hubby. Remember my plan for the dining room shelving? It’s still happening too. Now, I’m trying to figure out what color to stain the wood for the shelving. I don’t want anything to matchy matchy.
I can’t wait!
