the front of the house...they are putting up sheetrock this week!
I am looking for an antique or reproduction farm table. I have allotted space in my house for a table to seat 12. So far, I am having no luck finding what I'm looking for. It needs to be very simple with no frills or flourishes. I would prefer old wood. Chairs are not necessary...I can always come up with them.

So, if you are out and about, and happen to spy something that sounds similar, I would be so indebted to you for your kindness.

I can always have one made, but, I prefer to find one.

Thanks, friends.

Looking GOOD Tonja...I know it is going to be so beautiful when completed!

I am with you on the old farm table...I need one, too...I will keep my eyes open for both of us...I have seen a few in magazines of course...but never when I am out shopping...until recently I haven't really shopped that much for furniture. We have a guy that builds furniture at our little "big" flea market in Canton...he uses reclaimed wood...but he is more on the very rustic side...there is also another guy that builds furniture out of reclaimed wood...I had his card at one time...so I'll look for it again.

Good luck...I'll be looking, too!

Have you checked Molly Wood? \but I am picturing pine---old old pine. What are your floors going to be? Have you checked with Mrs. Veal, she might know of something.. I'll keep my eyes open. I made Alex key lime mini cheesecakes and they collapsed in the pan?!!!! Will redo and will get them to you. I was THRILLED to hear that the boys were together. Unity at its finest.

Wow...the houe is really coming along. So exciting!

Why don't you come this way, spend the night and let's hit the floor running and see what we can find?

Wow! Your house is coming along! I wouldn't even know where to begin to look for an old farm table. But it is great to have room for 12 to eat!
