The Farmhouse Table– Part 1

So I found some chairs finally off of Craigslist that I liked and was going to refinished since all of mine so far don’t match and half of them I have to make sure and tell people not to sit on them cuz’ they’ll smash them to the ground— awkward– ” I really mean the chair is weak not that your hefty or anything you know you look really good, have you lost weight recently?.” 

But bad thing was the chairs included a table with it and they wouldn’t split it up. So for the $60 price tag I figured whatever I’ll figure something to do with the table— Anyways a week or so later this is the conversation that ensued.

Me: Honey, I think I figured out what I’m going to do with that table—- I’m going to rip off the old tile table top and build more of a farmhouse table on the legs cuz’ I really like the legs of it.

Dave: Uhhhh– I think we should finish the fireplace.

“Ya but I’ll do it by myself you don’t even have to worry about it– I’m gonna get me a pink hammer.”

“What? your going to buy yourself a pink hammer?”

“No- This pink hammer—  see I’ll be awesome sauce cuz’ I did it all by myself and I’ll link to this page– cool huh”

“uhhh– why does it matter if your hubby helped you or not? Where’s the my freakin amazing hubby built this flame hammer? huh?”

“Ummm—whatever– it’ll be cool and I’ll do it by myself”

“You know that  farmhouse table design looks like a picnic table to me”

“Whatever, I like it and it does not- it looks like a table that’s been used and loved and had many cherished memories over– I like it— now can we please take the truck so you can help me get the wood.”

“But that would mean that I was helping you and you weren’t doing it all by yourself”

“Whatever that doesn’t count– you don’t want your big pregnant wife to have to put all those boards in the truck by herself do you?”

“K, get the kids in the truck”

After getting the measurements and making the plan, going to the store and loading the wood and bringing it home I ended up on the couch so so so tired.

Dave: “Come on– let me help you build that table”

Me: “Alright–  but I will get my pink hammer sometime ya know”

“uh- huh”

“I will”


“You don’t believe me? Do you honey?”

” No I believe you, but I think you know deep down having the amazing hubby flame hammer involved makes the process go a hecka lot faster huh.”

“Ya your right– I really like the amazing flame hammer hubby– He looks very very sexy when he’s using that hammer.”

“Whatever you crazy girl”

See I told you it had some nice legs– ugly green but nice
 Here’s Payter being the help that he is and a sneek peek at the almost finished chairs

and the built but not “finished” table at to which when we were building it I said more than once
“Shoot! It does look like a picnic table”
But I still have hope— It will look nice and I will like it when I finish it 🙂

See a little imagination– It’ll look similar to this pottery barn table 🙂
Can you see it?

But having the table take 2hrs instead of 2 days wasn’t the best part of the day– Payton yesterday discovered that his camera had video taking capabilities and was really having fun with it– He took a video of Brynley dancing—- * I love the little posing/moves– she gets those from her daddy 🙂

and while we were out working he decided he’d take some video of himself– which we discovered when we came back in on his camera and it cracked us up! I’m still laughing at his dancing moves.

 and Honey— Cuz’ I love you and do think your freakin amazing sauce.
