A sweet couple that used to live across the street from us moved to Hawkins, Texas- population 1278. When they moved they sold me their farmhouse table. They just did not think that they had room for the long table in their new dining room. I really only bought it for the legs because the top was not solid wood. The table hung out in the Garagemahal for months, and I do mean months. It was heavy and had to be moved any time that I was working on a project so I started to think I just needed to get rid of it. I decided just to paint it all out and sell it. I mentioned on Facebook to my friends that I was going to be selling the table and guess who responded that she wanted it? The original owner! As soon as I started on the table, a friend gave me two chairs and a bench that I knew would be joining the table. They we’re a mess, but wood.
I also had four other chairs hanging out in the Garagemahal that I bought for a song at Canton.
Do you like mixing and matching chairs around a table as much as I do? I love painting mixed chairs the same color. All in my friend ended up with a table that seats 8 for her dining room. The fabric on the chairs is young and fresh, just like my friends.
I love the Behr sea salt bottom and the revival mahogany together on the table but next year when our life is a little slower I would like to change out the top for a stained solid wood top.
My buddy waited a long time to get her table and chairs (like since November) but this past Saturday I got the chance to go and visit their little bit of heaven.
I love the dark mustard walls with the upholstery.
They call their home the Crooked T Ranch, I think it is charming. I am smitten with her sunroom/craft room and her bathroom has an original fireplace and chandelier in it.
