Working on the Farm

No, we haven't gone crazy and moved to the country...I've started working on my Mom's birthday present...a farmhouse dining table for her cute place at the beach. You know, the place I've never been to...I'll admit, I haven't gotten very far, but here is a sneak peak:

That's the wood that's going to become the top of the table. In the back of my minivan. While I do know that minivans rate about a -247 on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being super cool, one...not so much) they are super practical and super great at hauling all of my and the Smurfs stuff around town. I'm so cool, this is actually my second minivan. What can I say...I heart them.

And these are a 10 on the "stuff that is cool" scale. They are antique table legs that I purchased at Scotts Antique Market in Atlanta a couple of years ago. Yes, there are four there and I'm going to try really hard to not build a three legged table. They've been hanging out since I bought them, collecting a little dust, and waiting on me to decide how to use it is!
