Rustic Farm Table

It’s Monday!!!  This is going to be a VERY busy week in our household…how about yours?  Along with finishing up several projects and doing some more painting at the condo, I’ll also be packing for Florida!  (I want to squeeze in a little sundress shopping as well.)

SAM_4904My husband just finished building this Farm Table for a client.  Made to order especially for her and her family.  She requested this style for the legs and that the top be sealed for it will be greatly used.  I used three coats of clear satin poly over Minwax Jacobean Stain.


SAM_4903It’s a $95 additional charge for a drawer and she really wanted one but it just wasn’t in the budget.  We are surprising her with it this afternoon.  She is such a sweet client and has ordered so much from us, we wanted to do something special for her!




I also just finished to two chairs to sit at each end of the table.  Dave will be building a bench next for one side and we’re still looking for the two additional side chairs.  It’s all going to look beautiful in her home!  Can’t wait to deliver it today!

Funny true story…we were at an auction yesterday and a woman came up to my husband and just starred at him.  Finally she said; “You look just like Bruno Mars, you are gorgeous!”  We didn’t even know who Bruno was ’til we googled him later.  She said she had first seen Mars on some Victoria Secret TV show and fell in love.  Dave purchased the Stetson hat he’s wearing a few weeks ago at another auction for just $12 for protection from this Arizona sun.  (He does have the same cute dimples!)

  1. What a beautiful table! And I love that you surprised her and added the drawer – so fun to treat great customers to something extra now and then huh?! and I love the story about your hubby! how cute 🙂

    • Thanks Jill…she loved it! I picked up some more furniture from her to re-do! She has a beautiful home and the table fit perfectly! 🙂

  2. Just hold your horses missy! Bruno Mars is mine – all mine – assuming he is looking for an older woman (one who used to date God until He tired of dating someone so much older than Him). Saw him on the music awards show last night and just flat out drooled – not the same way I usually drool in that involuntary old lady way.
