From Grandma’s House to Our Home

My husband Mark amazes me.  We have wanted a harvest table for a while now, so he found some old pine and built one!  We just got it in the house today.  The pine is 3 inches thick, and what makes this table special is that the legs are made from pillars off of the front of his late grandmothers house.  We had used the pillars at our previous house in our landscaping, but when we sold the house that was one of the things that we were taking with us!  We love the table and the special meaning it has for us.

Pillars in the garden at our other house.

The wood before we started 
Figuring out what we wanted
Incorporating the pillars 
Before waxing…we didn’t want a really shiny finish so we just waxed it for protection.
Love that Mark left some of the chippy paint on the pillars
Love the colour! 
It’s perfect for our room!
Can’t wait to use it!
