I got my Mother's Day gift from Shane a little early. I told him I'd love a Farmhouse table, and he went to work drawing up some plans and getting the supplies. I'm in love with it!
He painted the legs and base white and stained the top black so the wood grain peaks through. Shane's planning on making a bench for the kids to sit too. Eventually the white will match the wainscoting Shane is working on now. My job is to pick the wall paint color. I'm thinking a blueish gray. My rule for a main room is the color has to work with all seasons. Yellow walls aren't great at Christmas.
And still not sure about window treatments. Kind of like the windows bare.
We get so much light in this home.
Shane likes to design his own projects, but you could do a less beefy version with this Ana White plan.
This table is so heavy, it takes two just to shift it.
Yippee! Here's to great husbands! What are you dreaming of this Mother's Day?
(Other than this table, I want a long nap and a chocolate malt.)
