I Made This

A while back I decided to make some changes in my kitchen/dining room decorating scheme. I had the world's heaviest kitchen table, which has been in my house for maybe 26 or 27 years, but no dining room table. So, I decided to paint my big country kitchen table, collect some assorted chairs to paint white, and use those in my dining room. The results are just what I was hoping for!

So, then I had no kitchen table! I did, however, have some white spindle-type table-leg-looking things that I had salvaged from my cousin's refuse pile by the side of the road. He had recently replaced his porch railing, and these were the throw aways.

So! It seemed plausible to me that having things that looked like kitchen table legs could easily be translated into having a table.

After much puzzling over planks and boards, after much measuring and marking and sawing and drilling, hammering, screwing and glueing, then painting... voila!

It's a table!

I would like to add that my daughter was especially pleased with my choice of placemats! But that was just for the picture.

The white makes the table and chairs look so elegant. You did a wonderful, professional job. You are indeed a very special person, and a very lovely Lady. I especially like the center piece on the table.

Paul, that centerpiece is truly gorgeous! Wonder where that came from?
