As the late great Bob used to say...

"It's a happy little accident."

Late last night as I was dismantling the massive round dining table and trying to figure out where in the heck am I going to store it, I had a happy little accident.
(Okay. That didn't sound right)

At first I was freaking out because the table legs only came apart in two sections. There was no way I could take them completely apart because they were most likely glued biscuit joints. I was staring at what looked like two triangular walkers. ((giggle))

As I was making room in our tiny "dining room" to drag out the massive table top, I placed the two leg sections together in the center of the room.

THAT'S IT!!! All I need is to make a table top and I have the perfect 3 foot square table for the room.

Heck, I've squirreled away some beautiful old barn wood doors that would make a beautiful table top!
I proudly wear my "I am a barn wood hoarder" badge.

As you can see, Bob is thrilled!

You thought I was talking about Bob Ross, didn't you?
Nope. Bob the Ghost.


Happy Saturday, all.

Now that is what I call a GENIUS move! I know it's going to look fantastic!

Genius is so true! You have so many great ideas! Wowzers! Q.. Is that barn wood on your walls? I love that look. Do you think it would look good if I were to put pallet boards on my wall like that? I mean, I would need to stain them all the same. But would that look goofy? My walls are burnt almond by Behr. Thanks. :-)

I'm pretty excited to get started on this project! Woo hoo!! I've never made a table top. But hey, it's never too late to learn, right?
Denise I have seen some pallets used as wainscoting and it looks great! I think the key (besides the right color stain) is to make sure the pieces are not perfectly even next to each other. To look old you want imperfections.
I snapped a close up photo of (and added it above) the barn siding. It was already on the walls when we purchased the home. Yet another reason why I fell in love with this place and knew it had to be our homestead. ♥
Judy, the previous owner occasionally stops by my blog. So Judy if you're reading this, did you put up the barn siding?? Inquiring minds want to know. :> )

Karin, Thank you so much! I can't wait to get started! I am also going to start working on putting a faux brick fireplace in my bedroom. My walls in there are antique white. I'm a copycat! Lol I looked on Farmhouse 5540 blog and saw her beautiful fireplace in her family room. Ideas! Ideas! :O)
