Creating a ‘Creation Station’

We have been busy creating a funky chunky art/dining table for our room. My wish was to have a large table that was either ‘funky’ or ‘chunky’. Our friend Joel designed and built the fab table. Duran, Marco and I distressed it by banging large rocks against it and swinging heavy chain at it (which Duran just loved by the way).

It has been raining here the last few days, so we had to carry it into the house. Marco and I had to carry it in a few pieces at a time, as it is sooooo heavy. It is made out of solid fir beams. Thank goodness the top had not yet been fastened on.

Today I coated it in two layers of dark stain. Tomorrow morning I shall be putting on my first coat of varnish. Once I am done, Joel will attach the top boards. Plus unbeknownst to him, I think we will need 1.5″ to 2″ taken off of the legs, as it is just a tad bit to high for our existing chairs. My Mom is 5’4″ and would otherwise be sitting so low at the table that she would be just shoveling her food off of her plate into her mouth. ha ha. Not to mention when Duran and his friends will be sitting at it.

Once the table is complete, I will be placing favorite photos, inspiring art images, sayings, etc of the table top before we lay down a glass. Sooo Excited!

Have a great night!

Keep smiling and creating! Nicci
