A New Project

I hope all of you in the United States had a good July 4th yesterday (and all of you not in the US :))! We enjoyed a church BBQ and then spent the rest of the day getting started on a new table for our dining room.

We’ve had a small Ikea table for the past 7 or so years. I remember when we bought it, we said it should last us until we had a couple of kids. Well, funny enough, right around the time that our third came along, it became time for a new table!

The kids have had their way with the chairs, and also the finish on the table top, so it’ll be so nice to upgrade to a table that’s larger and nicer to look at :).

I’ve got Joel on a deadline (we may have made a deal in exchange for him buying some new things to make the table with), so hopefully I’ll be able to post the finished product soon!

  1. Ha, ha! Your deal line made me laugh–can totally see that happening. :) I think we were saying the same thing seven years ago about a variety of things…and some of them are still here! Can’t quite rid ourselves completely of those Polo Club days! :) Hooray for new furniture!

  2. The deal made me laugh as well. You two do such a great job building and designing things!! I am excited to see the finished product :)
