Yipee! Jesse finished
my our dining table! When we tore down the deck last summer, Jesse saved the cedar stringers and upcycled them into a beautiful table. He is so clever and handy! Cedar is a soft wood that dents easily so we might need to order piece of tempered glass for the top.
There are a few things I’d still like to do (vintage light fixture!), but with the completion of the upcycled table, I’m feeling pretty happy about the dining area. I think I need to give Jesse a break from all the projects, too!
I love the way the space looks, but it’s also a big improvement in terms of functionality. Our old dining chairs were awkward with low seats so I always felt like a little kid sitting at a big table. The new chairs and table have a better seat height to table height relationship – if that makes sense? The new table is also a few inches narrower so the added room makes it much easier to access the chairs along the wall.
