I’ve had a hard time with finding a dining table that will suit or needs AND suit this space. I feel like I keep buying and selling because I’m never realllly happy and every table just kind of “will do”. Christmas is what made me realize that or circular table just doesn’t cut it especially when we have company over. We had people eating in the living room and for all that TRULY knows me, knows that there are things that get to me and that my friends is one of them!
On a impulse and being completely frustrated I sold the table and chairs and ended up bringing upstairs a very old farmhouse folding table
I know, what was I thinking right LOL. Even I was thinking what do we do now with this space. I’m there fall my husband spent hours taking apart pallets for me. And all that wood was just sitting there. We decided to take that old table and create something using it’s bones as the base.
- We layed out each piece moving them around until we liked the color combo and started to glue them on ( we used or favorite PL premium adhesive) and air nailed as wellYou can stain or paint what suits you best but for us I used minwax special Walnut and aged grey. After that was dry I white washed with white paint mixed with water and did the paint on/ wipe off method. I sealed with Varathane water based sealer. We LOVE how it’s turned out! We had everything on hand and cost us $0.
