Our Handmade Farm Table

It's hard for me to imagine a pile of wood becoming this...

It amazes me everytime I look at it.

Our very own farm table and we made it ourselves! Farm tables can be expensive. I've seen tables range from $500 to upwards of $2,000 and that's without the chairs. Sometimes I'm glad I don't have lots of money. Otherwise, I might not have discovered what a pleasure doing it yourself can be. Of course, now that I've learned that lesson it won't hurt if I win the lottery.

Our fingerprints and date inscription underneath the table

When I was pregnant last year, after I got over all the sickness that sometimes goes with pregnancy, I started nesting. Hard. It's crazy because my child is nearly a year old and I'm still doing it which isn't a bad thing because we've lived here for four years and I'm just starting to feel like the house is mine.

Our dining room, in addition to a new table, is getting a complete overhaul. It is so exciting! But so much work! I really hope to be completely done with it in the next few weeks so that I can share it with you all. Of course, we have a few more things to build and it took me two years to convince my husband we could, in fact, build our own table. Hopefully he's still enjoying the high of having done so and I can squeeze a few more things out of him.

I can't wait to show you what I found on craigslist for $30 tomorrow. It's almost as big as my 7 year old {who's almost 8!}.

By the way, I've named the table Sheila and everytime I think of her I sing this little song in my head. I thought I'd share the video so it can get stuck in your heads, too. Enjoy!
