Pretty French farm table
Hi guys, hope everyone is having a fabulous long weekend. Mine has been wonderful so far. I've finally met Christine and Rob a wonderful couple from smith falls Ontario, we have been Facebook friends for awhile so it was nice to finally meet in person. We had a lovely time hanging around the campfire roasting marshmallows and drinking a great coffee. An all around fabulous evening a great way to start the weekend. Today I'll spend the day with my cousin who's visiting from Toronto she is absolutely my best friend, but since my move to the country 7 years ago and busy family life, our visits are a lot further apart than they use to be making them so precious when we find the time for each other. I have also been up to this fabulous farm table makeover. It all started last winter when my patio table fell victim to a terrible windstorm, and the glass top was shattered. I was going to go out and buy a new one untill I saw Courtney's post at French Country Cottage you can check it out here.www.frenchcountrycottage.blogspot.com/2012/01/chippy-vintage-table. html. It totally inspired me to fix my table myself it came out beautiful, and it cost no more than 40 dollars-gotta love that!. So the hubs and I got together and created this..............Here's how we did it.
We started with just a frame
Then I ran out to the local lumber store and got all the lumber we needed and had it cut.
Then I pieced the table together Sort of like a puzzle
Then the hubby screwed it together for me
We then placed it on top of the frame
After I gave it a whitewash of course..
It turned out so pretty, I like it better than it was before
I'm absoluely in love with my new farm table, I think it sort of has a french vibe dont you ?Now I'm on to painting the frame and chairs I'm also looking for the perfect fabric to recover the chairs, but thats for another post.... Thanks for stopping buy.......................... have a fabulous rest of the weekend xoxo Elle..
