Farmhouse Table = Future Project

I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus, but in my defense, I have projects out the whazoo!  Mostly simple ones like figuring out how to hang heavy mirrors without ripping out the walls.  Must purchase toggle bolts! 

THIS is my distraction: 
A beautiful Restoration Hardware farmhouse table that will cost you 4 digits! 

On a shopping trip this past weekend, with my sweet friend Shell, we happened upon this baby at Impact!  I was shocked when the salesman said, "I'll give it to you for $35", and the look on Shellie's face confirmed my attachment to the table.  This 6ft sucker was going in the car one way or another.  Seats down, hatch up, buckle up.  Unfortunately for me, Jason was out of town, and I had to sweet talk a couple of twenty year olds to carry this 200 lb baby up to my second floor apartment.  

Sure it needs some work (not to mention table accessories --- ignore that, we'll ya?), but I'm stoked! You don't know how long it has been since I've actually had a place to sit and eat rather than resorting to the couch and a t.v. tray. I can actually entertain!!! More to come on that later (wink)! 

Also, check out the faux bamboo wrought iron chair I scored for $10!!  Yet another project.  I plan on recovering the seat cushion.  The tacky green mirror was a curb find and will be getting a spray tan soon.  And last but not least, the storage bench, also a curb steal (Call me crazy, it's not the first time), will be serving as additional seating until we can afford a set like these.

I spotted two of these at TJ Maxx for $120 each, but I was already spent.  Chairs are on my wishlist, and we'll be getting a rug soon!!  Slowly but surely, our apartment is coming together.


  1. You know I love me some Impact! Congrats on the great find. Looking forward to seeing how you transform it.

  2. Thanks!! I think so! Now, I'm on the hunt for chairs!!! These Tell City chairs just don't do the trick. I may be making a trip to IMPACT today. They seem to have the best prices.
