Oh boy...this one is tough to take in the shop and not my dining room!! Last month I found some gorgeous, chunky porch pillars and knew immediately they needed to have a new purpose in life. Lucky for me (and most serendipitous!) my friend and fellow dealer from The Red Chair in Grandview stopped in the store the same week. (By the way, if you have not been in her store on 5th Avenue do stop in, she has some wonderful finds.) Nancy happened to tell me her husband Richard makes fabulous tables, long story short, the table below was born out of that discussion.
Richard found the perfect top, a 100 year old barn door. The patina is stunning! To round out the table top and match the scale of the legs Richard added bread boards to the ends of the table. Old barn wood siding has used to create the skirt.
Isn't she beautiful! Look at those legs! They are about 20 inches around! She's not quite finished. I will seal the table with a clear coat but since I lack a workshop the table is front and center in the window. Thank you Richard!! Some lucky family thanks you too.
This BIG boy's "daddy", Richard, made this exquisite table.
He soon grew tired of our design ramblings and dozed off. What's on his head? Looks like "Candied Apple Red" lipstick! "Mom" Nancy gave him a kiss before he went out on his daily travels!
