Labor of Love

Remember this post where I talked about wanting to build the modern farmhouse table from Knock-Off Wood? Well... we did it! {finally}

It only took us about 3 hours to build the table {not counting finishing} and we spent about $60 on wood, $10 on stain and we had pretty much everything else we needed.

After 1 coat of stain:

After 3 more coats of stain:

The bamboo chairs are filling in until I find chairs. {Bamboo chairs are going in the breakfast nook}

We used black screws and are leaving them exposed right now for a more rustic look, but I am still trying to decide if I like it.

It is a pretty big step to have a table in our dining room. It has been empty for so long!

That's really amazing! Way to want to do something ... and then actually do it. Can't say the same for myself.
