The Little Green Farm Table

Our table was featured by Kim of Savvy Southern Style at her Wow us Wednesday party.  Thanks so much, Kim!

Well, he's done it again - a couple weeks ago, my husband created another farm table from an old salvaged door and some reclaimed barn wood.  It's smaller and greener than the first table he did, but I thought it would be a great kitchen table, desk, or craft table.

I tried taking pictures in the house, but it was chaos.

 
I love that my babies want to be around me...seriously, I know it's a blessing and probably won't last...

...but, it also makes taking pictures a test of one's patience...

...to say it nicely.

Plus, it's too cold to paint outside, so I currently have 3 dressers, a bookcase, a desk, and about 10 drawers sitting in the room with the table.  Does not make for a nice pictures.

So, outside I went (I know the neighbors MUST think I'm NUTS!!!) to take pictures...

It was so cold that I could barely bend my finger to hit the button on the camera.  Kind of sounds like the beginning of a bad joke
...in Ohio, it's so cold...your mama wears carhartts and long-johns (ahem, thermal underwear for you fancy people) at the same time.

Please don't un-follow me for that horrid attempt at humor.  I'll try not to let it happen again.  Promise.

But it was so cold and windy that I put very little effort forth to try to decorate the table...

Thank you SO much to all of you dear people who have wished my husband well and shared your own stories of the craziness caused by steroids.  He had his first infusion this morning, and it went really well.
I do really appreciate your support, you are the bestest!

I want that! I was looking around today for something to stick in my kitchen for a makeshift "island"...it's not big enough for a real one but has this big open space that is crying our for one!

OMG, my boys are so stuck in "yo' momma's so stupid" jokes...as in "yo momma's so stupid she sat on the TV and watched the sofa..." What kind of momma am I to not only sit around and laugh at that, but to encourage it... Oh, mercy...

What a sweet table. That green is gorgeous. And my kiddos stick to me like I have static cling. Mostly I love it, but when I'm trying to do something, it makes me crazy.

I love this little table! Too cute...thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. And, a friend of mine is actually putting the carriage door hardware on her larger garage door. If she is OK with it, I'll take a pic and put it on my blog, so you can see it. I think it would look great on one big one. I'm following you back, have a great Monday!
