Mother's Day Surprise





This is the table that was with the dining chairs I bought not too long ago.  
The wood matches perfect to the chairs I got.  
I had been admiring the table for sometime but I had my barn wood table already.

I loved the chunky legs and the color of this pretty table.



This is the table I had already made out of old barn wood.  I loved this table but as you can see by looking at the chairs the wood was a perfect match to the bigger table at the shop.



 
The only thing that bothered me with this table was the barn wood was uneven and curved in many spots.  Even with Terry sanding it down and working with it it was not flat.  

Terry and I took a drive out to Rustic Fox the shop with the table that matched my chairs.  
Terry said he wanted to surprise me and buy the table for me for Mother's Day.  Love that man!  
We measured it and came home and measured the space and it would fit so he bought it for me.



Now I have more seating which fits our whole family when they come for dinner and I was able to bring back my two slipcovered end chairs.
Sorry about the glare on this picture but believe me the table and chairs are a perfect match.

Nice surprise for me on Mother's Day.

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day.
Have a great new week ahead.
We are in the 90's today and high 80's all week.
Illinois weather is so crazy.
We go from winter right into summer with very little spring.
I am just happy to see the sunshine.

xoxo

  3. What a beautiful gift! I love it! YES girl, you will enjoy that big table with your tribe. We use a table that my grandfather built in which I keep saying I am going to give it a make over and haven't yet! It seats Marty and I along with three daughters and soninlaws. The breakfast bar is used for the three oldest grands and a card table for the three youngest grands. I told my family Kris that we are about to outgrow SPACE! LOL! But it is indeed wonderful when you can all sit together and eat and fellowship. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. That new table is gorgeous and definitely meant to be. I love the color and the chunky legs, and it looks perfect with your chairs. Maybe Terry can take the boards from the old table and make something with them. Clever and handy man that he is.

  23. What a fantastic surprise!! I love the table and chairs, it looks perfect in your Home Sweet Home!!!!

    I agree with you about the weather. I do not want to complain, but 90 degrees is a wee much for May 11th. The spring flowers do not know what to do!
