My kitchen table

My friends, Deborah, Matt and Jim were responsible for getting this table done.

I had picked out this old door from the front of Cornerstone Antiques in early summer. Deborah suggested it when I told her I was looking for a farmhouse table.

Her husband, Matt, was just too busy to finish it, but he did find the table legs.

Finally, about a month ago, Jim finished it off. He's done a beautiful job of skirting it and finishing it with a colored wax. It's super easy to clean - just a damp cloth to wipe it down.

The original door hinges are still there and the place where the knob went.

And the price - you'd never believe how cheap for a custom piece, so I won't tell.

All in all, the farm table I've always wanted.
