I LOVE the Pottery Barn style tables.
Actually, I love the Pottery Barn style everything. But, I especially love the tables. They are just so darn expensive and I really can't spend that kind of money on a table with 2 small children. I want to actually be able to use the table. Anyway, I knew a table wouldn't be that hard to make so I was trying to get my father-in-law to make me one, when my husband offered! I couldn't believe it, I've asked him so many times to make me furniture and he never wants to. Now he is so into it.
He showed me this table he was going to make. I loved it, so he got right to work.
We picked Douglas Fur for the wood because I really liked the grain in it and thought it would look really nice stained. I wanted the table to be very basic.
Here is how the stain turned out. C really loves helping daddy!
The table looks really nice all stained, but it's not quite finished, Mr. C wanted to put those metal straps in it to give it a little extra character. I thought it looked fine the way it was.
Mr. C was right, I love it the way he did it.
Final cost was a little over $100.
Now, he is working on my bench, hopefully it will be done by this weekend. I don't have any chairs either. I'm looking for mismatched, matching chairs from thrift stores.
