This wasn’t the project I’d originally planned on posting today, but the quote on my chalkboard made it appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day!
Being neither Irish nor Catholic, I will admit that I don’t see a lot of point in St. Patrick’s day…so that chalkboard is the extent of my St. Patrick’s day decorating! But we may have something with cabbage in it for dinner.
The family that bought this Farmhouse Table commissioned me to make a buffet / console table for them as well. I used Ana White’s Rustic X Console table plan, although without the X’s or the decorative hardware.
I also shortened the table down to 64”. As the plan was written, it was almost the same length as I made the Farmhouse table, and we thought it would look better if they were a little different.
There is just something about this old-looking, scarred wood that captivates me, especially when paired with simple white dishes.
It looks great as a buffet, but I also think it would make a great behind-the-couch table, holding blankets and board games.
My daughter thought we ought to keep it!
**That’s high praise from a teenager. **
