I still have my inspiration picture that I saved back in March and now I can't figure our whose blog this came from...I would love to give her credit for her awesome table, but for right now I'm drawing a blank. I'm sure I will run across this blogger again because as I recall I LOVED everything about this house.
This was one of my husband's projects, so again I have to give him all of the credit. He started by taking the pallets apart and saving the existing nails to re-use later.
Once he had enough he started to lay them out on the table for placement and size. I also didn't want everything to match up [again I like rustic] and when you have three boys in the house--my two step son's and my eight year old brother who visits often and a two year old little girl who is more destructive then her older brothers - rustic is great! Because when it does get nicked here and there it looks like it was supposed to be that way. Tricks of a mother ;-)
Once they were all laid out he marked the length on each side of the table and cut the ends evenly with a skill saw. Yes this was all done inside....I'm still cleaning up saw dust, lol!
He here is how it looks now.....
We're not quite finished. We're going to paint the table a similar color to the one pictured above and add a pop of color to the chairs and bench as well.
So for now this story is to be continued, but whatcha think so far??
