I’m not sure if I ever said it here on the blog, but ever since we moved into our Michigan house almost two months ago we have been on the hunt for a dining room table. We couldn’t use our amazing farmhouse table from our last two houses because this dining room is so small that we use that table in a different room in our house that will be on the blog soon. We found an old one in the basement here but it wasn’t what we wanted, but it worked find for a temporary table. The hunt continuesd at antique stores, online sites, side of the road, you name it we looked & couldn’t find anything. Of course there was the option to build one, but with life as crazy as it was when we moved here, building one would have to wait. Well, yesterday while I was at my booth at Painted Farm Girl I stumbled upon a dining table that spoke to me. I liked it, but it needed some work & I can handle that right now so it came home with me.
There the table is! It’s a heavy little beast. I love the salvaged antique legs & the white & wood combo. You might be able to see the work that it needs right away. Thankfully the fixes should be pretty easy & not so time consuming. Here is a little run-down of what we will be doing in our dining room & more specifically to the table now that we are finally working on this room.
Were the legs bothering you? Yah me too. I’m wondering if this was meant to be a sofa table.. a large one? Anyways, those will be moving asap. The top of the table needs to be fixed with some clamps or maybe even a whole new top in general. I want to make the top a little wider as well. A few more quick things in the room: Add a barstool to set by the kitchen counter, find new dining chairs, add some shelves or a slim piece of furniture, & change the light fixture or lower it.
I’m feeling so great that we took the first step towards working on our dining area since this room is visible right when you walk into our house. I think a super hard decision will be the chairs. I just like so many! Do you have any chair suggestions… 4,6, style, color. Leave them below! What do you think of the table? Are you excited for us to move the legs & maybe change the top? Because I am! I can’t wait to hear from you & be sure to chat with me on Facebook & Instagram! xx
