Let's see how many ways we can change a table lol
Most of you have seen the photo of my little farmhouse table - for those that haven't here's a pic
( you can see more photos of it here )
It's the perfect little farmhouse table for this reason
it " flips " open to double it's size easily accommodating 6 people !
last winter I had John put a little shelf on the bottom - because I'm always about storage ( I've never lived in a big enough house where that wasn't an issue - NEVER ) you can see that post here
Then I added a rack to it to hang my cutting board - towel - oven mitts - whatever ( dangling basket perhaps? )
Now as a table it's perfect -
But it's centered in the middle of the kitchen in this house - and it should be counter height because of that little fact.
John says- I'm on my way to Home Depot -
Suzan says - Oh! If you're going there can you pick me up some casters?
John says - for what?
Suzan says - the kitchen table - it's too low for the kitchen - I want to give it some height and casters would be perfect
John says- Oh my God - what else can you add to that table?
John says - It's an ANTIQUE - you're taking away any value by constantly adding to it...........
Suzan says - Well there's value - and then there's personal taste - and sometimes the 2 clash
John says - WE'RE NEVER BUYING ANOTHER ANTIQUE - NEVER !!!!!!!!
Suzan says - that's ok - we overpaid for this anyway
Suzan says - I was thinking of adding an umbrella to it - one of those outdoor ones - what do you................
too late - he stormed out -
BUT HE CAME BACK WITH THEM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I drilled holes in the bottom of the legs - and placed inserts ( where the stem of the wheel slides into)
and voila - it's now counter height - which is exactly what I needed - the great thing is the wheels can slide in and out if I change my mind!
A huge thank you to Chania from RAZMATAZ for being the first to suggest it - a lot of you did but she was the first :)
" islands in the stream - that is what we are ♪♫♫ ( oh come on - most of you were waiting for that :)
I'm on the look out for 2 old rustic stools - ( I have a friend that has 2 that I'd give anything to have - hmmm wonder if she needs a dresser - since I have an abundance of them lol - a little switcheroo )
I'll be working on the kitchen ceiling today - isn't that just about as exciting as life can get?
Have a great Thursday all !
Party Time !!! ( click on links to see some inspiration !!! )
