I gave our kitchen table to my little brother and his wife last weekend. Never mind that we didn’t have one to replace it. I knew it was the kick in the pants Scott needed to get busy building us a new one. (You may recall seeing our terribly worn old oak table in lots of the pictures I’ve posted on here. I think my brother and sister in law have grand plans of painting it… after a very thorough removing of all the crusted on food from the children.)
Not that that guy isn’t doing enough these days. What can I say? I’m a…. demanding wife. BUT I know he loves this kind of stuff, too, and we’ve been talking about building a new kitchen table out of the leftover pieces of wood from our new floors he installed last year forever.
So he started yesterday…
And hopefully we’ll have something to eat off of by Monday.
We (and by we, I always mean he) are not building the chairs, though. In fact, even if he could build them, I’m not sure I’d like the matchy matchy look. Instead, I’m 90% sure I’m ordering these:
And hopefully we’ll end up with something a little similar to this:
I’ll let you all know how it turns out soon! Ideally, we’ll have the chairs by the end of next week because what good is a table if we can’t sit at it? I mean, other than the obvious shit collector for all the things nobody actually wants to put away when they get home.
What are you up to this weekend? Any fun home projects?
Hope it’s a great one, and Happy Cinco de Mayo!
