"wood" you be mine?


It all started with of glimpse of this wooden farmtable.

I spotted it in Nashville.

Not one single thing would I change.

OK.. maybe the price.




Did you spot those perfect legs?

Yeah, 

I figured you would.

Not to mention the perfect shade of  aged wood.

This table has got it going on!

Don't even get me started on the chairs.

Have MERCY!

Just when I composed myself, I crossed the street to another shop.

And who did I bump into?

Her cousin!




This is why one should never take husbands small work car and try and save gas.

Nope.

Now how in the world did he expect me to bring something as precious as this home?

I think he plotted this against me.

He knows I'm weak.

The Lord sure knew what he was doing when he paired us up lol.




And right next door..

You got it.

Another beaut!

So guess who thinks shes gonna make one?

It can't be that hard?

Can it?

If you have every tried your hand at a old farmhouse house table.

Please do tell.

My heart can't take much more 

xoxo Susie

  1. anxious to see what you come up with! I have a glass top table in my DR now on a wrought iron base. Not as heavy as in the first table, but I had thought about having my husband who is too handy for his own good and has every tool known to mankind in the garage (total mess!) make me a table top to just place over the glass to get the look I like which is so trendy now but still have the glass if I ever change my mind back. So cant wait to see what you come up with! I would want it to look like a thick slab of wood when in actuality it would be a thin sheet of rough plywood on top with sides that look thick but are just a fake edge sort of like they do with granite countertops if you are familiar with how they do those...

  2. I can't wait to see how ya'lls turns out because this exact project is what we're doing in 3 years! My hubs is in the military and when we move back to Texas after his enlistment, he told me he wants a big wooden, farmhouse dining room table. Looking forward to seeing how y'all do yours! Oh, and PLEASE do something similar as those beautiful wrought iron legs. Those are gorgeous.

  3. Can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm currently plotting to make a kitchen, counter height table for an awkward spot that I can't find anything right for. I love the farm house table look too.

  4. I didn't build it from scratch, but I did do a little rehab work on a table whose legs were pretty perfect, even if they were "Marsha Brady yellow."

  5. Susie, I've had the bug to build something, too. We're determined and women so we can make it happen, right?!

    Also, can you share the names of the stores that you visited in Nashville? They all looked like my kind of stores. Nashville is only 5 hours away and I think it would make a fun weekend get away.

    Thanks and you go girl!!

    1. Barbara, I'd bet my firstborn that she was in Franklin, TN, just south of Nashville, for those pics. They have a blow-your-mind antiques, etc., district. You should definitely make a weekend trip: http://www.folklifestyle.com/2012/11/a-leisurely-walk-through-the-hot-spots-of-franklin-tennessee.html

  8. Susie, My husband and I built a Farmhouse style table last year. It wasn't too hard to do, I'm sure y'all could make one. Here's the link to mine: http://embraceablelife.com/?p=2992#more-2992. Good luck! - Kitty

  10. You can do it and I'm sure it will look amazing...Make your husband help you...this is all his fault anyway, right? Take care Susie...

  11. AH!!!! The first one!!! The $1200 one at the Franklin Antique Mall, right? Swoon. My husband and I were in Nashville earlier this month to sell our home (we are in NW Ohio now) and wandered around Franklin after closing. I, too, fell in love with that table... Sigh. I hope for great success for you as you attempt a knock-off. Maybe if you can pull it off, I'll have the guts to try, too!
