~ My Farmhouse (Fence) Easter Table ~


My husband surprised me by making this chippy white farm table


When I was gone antique shopping with a friend he was busy working on this table
I had no idea he was making it
We had discussed that we really needed another table for Easter Sunday
Since our pine farm table is too small




I was completely at a loss for words when he showed it to me
 He made it out of our old chippy white fence that he tore down last year
I still can't believe how sweet and creative it was for him to make it
And it was FREE except for some nails and etc.
I had no idea my husband could be so "green" ;)
It isn't perfect which makes it perfect to me and really special
Now we have more space for our guests on Sunday


~ I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter ~
Hugs,
Rachel
