My resident carpenter built this new dining room table for us! It's made from antique barn boards full of nail holes and all those character-building flaws that we love! It's got a beautiful hand-rubbed finish that shows off the grain to the max! The antique chairs that surrounded the old table look good with this one, too ~ but black Windsor side chairs would look fabulous!

This is a view from the other end ~ I'm loving this table! Thank you, Sonny for your hard work!! He has had this in his sights for years and is really happy with the results!

Sonny has proved once again what a keeper he is. But then you are also a pretty good catch. Together, magic happens!!

What a lovely table Alice! I'm glad I found you, I love rug hooking, although haven't gotten to do more than a little teaser. Alice, thanks for the advice on the ad. I took it off as a main post. Have a wonderful day!
