Happy Friday, friends!
I’m about 2 months late on this one-but I finally wanted to share our behemoth table that we were so excited to complete the weekend before moving into our new home!
If you follow me on Snapchat (@absolutelykylie) you watched this beauty transform, and if you don’t, that’s okay because I’m about to share how we created this 8-10 person table for $35.00. Yep, you read that right, thirty five smackers.
One weekend as we were moving out of our first house and bringing up the 167th load of our junk up to storage, we drove by this junky little table that looked like it was solid wood, had incredible bones, and had a bright white “free” sign in front of it. Ya’ll. The heavens parted and I almost set up some orange cones around that table so that no one would snatch it before we could grab the truck!
Once we inspected it, we knew it was going to need a little extra lovin’, and my dad suggested we add a new tabletop-which is exactly what we did! With lots of his help, we created this rustic/reclaimed table for only 35 bucks in lumber, and a little bit of elbow grease.
We started with different sized planks to give it a more “barnwood” look, and my dad laid those over the top of the table using his nail gun to secure them to the top.
As we did this, all hands were on deck painting the legs annie sloan “ graphite” (the same color we’d like to paint our cabinets when we remodel the kitchen next year!)
But friends, it was WORTH the wait! We eat at this table every single night, and paired with our tufted grey chairs, it just makes my heart swoon! These flower boxes were leftover from my best friend's wedding, and make such a cute centerpiece filled with magnolia flowers. (where are my fellow Jojo fans at?)

Thanks for stopping by-make sure to follow along on Snapchat to view our house progress…we’re supposed to get a rainy weekend, so that means we’ll be nice and busy inside!
Until Next Time,
