The table is 12 feet long, and made from twenty six 2x4 pine boards. The top has been finished in Annie Sloan Paris Grey chalk paint, distressed heavily, and waxed with dark wax. It has the appearance of a drift wood color. The curved pedestals have not been finished yet....they will get the same paint treatment and some metal banding to mimic wine barrels. The ends of the table will also get some metal accents as well. My husband is modeling a table that he saw at Pottery Barn last week. The total cost of this table, that will seat 12 - 14 people, is $175. Pottery Barn's table was not as long and was $1800.
.... I will post more about the table in the coming days! I bought twelve chairs at Ikea today and I will be pulling together the table settings for Christmas! I am so proud of my table and so lucky to have a talented husband who goes above and beyond to make me happy every day!
