Well, then a few months ago I ran across some DIY farmhouse table stuff and showed it to Lantz and jokingly told him he could just make me one (not really thinking he'd take me up on it). Well, low and behold Lantz breaks down and gets a Pinterest (not sure he wants me divulging that information) and starts pinning lots of DIY farmhouse table stuff.
He decided that he could totally build me a table and so we sold our old table to pay for the lumber for my new farmhouse table. He borrowed some tools from some friends and got to work. It has been a exciting few weeks in my house to say the least! Lantz has been working around the clock on this table.... getting up at 6:00am and working on it before work, working on it when he gets off in the afternoon, working on it after we put the girls to bed until 11:00pm some nights, and also working on it on his days off. It's been so cool to watch it all come together.... and might I add that it's super sexy to see my handyman take a pile of wood and amazingly turn it into a gorgeous table! I've got such an incredible husband! Now for some pictures:
And now the finished product... it is about 8ft long & 4ft wide and it has two extensions- one for each side that makes it about 10ft long. The bench is about 6ft long and 1&1/2ft wide. It weighs over 200lbs. He even took two extra days and did some distressing on it. It is beautiful!

I'm so excited about this table! This is not one that I plan on keeping for a few years and then trading it in. I would love to see my grandchildren sit at this table some day, Lord willing. It's special.
Just wanted to share this exciting piece of our life with you!
