Need more table space? Make some!
I came upon this project when all my tables were used to seat our Thanksgiving guests and I needed somewhere to display our yummy desserts. Needed something quick, inexpensive, and uncomplicated. What to do? Shop my stash, of course! Three barn boards, two treadle sewing machine legs, and some tools...I had a vision. So easy!
The barn wood was free! One was used for the bottom shelf and two were used for the top. Basically, it was all screwed to the treadle sewing machine legs.
Thanksgiving was such a whirlwind, that I had no chance to take a picture of the table with the desserts. So here it is in Christmas mode.
I have family members who on Thanksgiving gifted me with (some homemade) wines and this table has now provided the perfect spot for them. And yes, that is a chicken feeder. Fun display piece and goes great with the barn wood.
Behind the table is a divider with lace panels. It's just enough to hide any kitchen mess I may have. Of course, I never have any. Wink, wink. It's just that when you walk through our front door, you are smack dab in our living room (no entryway) and the whole kitchen which is just beyond that is visible. This divider breaks it up a bit.
For the Christmas display on top of the table, I used an old galvanized bucket with garland, rustic sleigh bells, and pine cones spilling out. I quickly made some book page trees and topped them with some rustic stars. This was all so fun!
Thanks for the visit and checking out my farm table!

Thanks to all the great hostesses!
